The Michigan Worker Afloat: Turtlebacks and Fish Tugs
Another well researched and informative article on Michigan history. Years ago (1975) I was hitchhiking out of Traverse City and was picked up by Bill Carlson of Carlson Fish Market in Leland’s Fishtown. We talked until Lansing. It was the start of my awareness of the history as well as the trials and tribulations of commercial fishing in NW Lake Michigan. There is the recreational fishing side too, along with the rights of the resident Native Americans. A mixed bag of considerations.
Really enjoying the series and learning a lot.
