White fish are running in the Great Lakes now. Fishermen brave the wind, snow, ice and wind after dark on the boardwalk and piers. They use a lure called the Swedish pimple and some are lucky enough to catch some whitefish.
Read more about the fish, both native, as are the whitefish, and planted as are Pacific salmon, in my book, The Dynamic Great Lakes.
The book is widely available at Amazon.com, bn.com and in many bookstores.
Take care when walking on the breakwater. The waves can carry you away if you slip and fall or if a rogue waves washes you in. Pictured is sun down at the confluence of the Grand River and Lake Michigan one of the wildest of the five Great Lakes. It is beautiful but it can be treacherous. There are many shipwrecks under the five Great Lakes. In November the waves can be very powerful.
