Lake Michigan video

Lake Michigan and one sea gull reflected in the wet sand as waves roll in. 

In the distance the pier with its lighthouse marks the channel where the Grand River flows into Lake Michigan.

I have canoed the Grand River and I have seen the places where fish lurk. I have seen them rise to the surface and splash down.  I have sailed and fished in Lake Michigan as well as the other Great Lakes.

Read about the Great Lakes and their living webs of life in The Dynamic Great Lakes, a non-fiction book available on the www and in bookstores such as Barnes & Noble, Schuler Books and Music, The Bookman and many other places.

Lake Erie and Walleye Fishing

The first time I saw a walleye I thought it was blind.  They are not but their eyes are made for seeing in dark waters.
Walleye fishing will be starting soon on Lake Erie and other places where the fish make their runs. 

 They are excellent on the dinner table.

Short term profits vs. long run necessities

“Each generation must deal anew with the raiders, with the

scramble to use public resources for private profit and with the

tendency to prefer short run profits to long run necessities.”
                                                 –John F. Kennedy

In his wisdom, our late president saw the problem clearly.  

Of all long run necessities, water is right on top.  Water is life.
