A Great Lakes Commercial Fishing Boat

Fishing Tug
Great Lakes commercial fishing.. usually with gill nets but occasionally trawl nets.. take place in all weathers and all seasons. This design allows for complete shelter of the crew. Nets are set through the stern door.. and retrieved through a side door. On the return trip to port fish are picked from the nets in reasonable comfort. There is room in the wheelhouse for crew to sleep on matresses.. under very low headroom.. on the way to the fishing grounds.. or if they are fishing out of other than their home port. Fishing though is day fishing.. out in the morning as early as 4am and back to the dock by mid afternoon to allow the fresh fish to be shipped.

Hi Jack
Hello there, Nice to read your blog and general insights Jack. I'm a bit of a fair weather biker, however I would love, love, love to do some trips like yours. From what little I've read anyway. :) I understand you have little time to spend updating these entries while you're traveling, so probably don't have much time to give expansive detail .... (when starting to read a sentence that starts like that I guess you can 'hear' the formative feedback coming. So here it is. ) ..... I was kinda looking for some Zen and the Art of Motorcycling type insights in your stories ... .something to give your stories a bit of extra dimension. What smells did you experience? How did an experience affect you personally? What do you think? I don't blog myself so please ignore the above if you feel it's waffle. cheers, Mark

Sum up from a reader
Jack; This was a wonderful way to rap up your blog. I know I speak for many when I say, I really looked forward to reading about your exploits, checking out the Google map to see if I might have driven the route at some time in the past etc. I especially enjoyed your stories about the people encounters. You're much more open about approaching strangers than I would have been. I hope this isn't your last trip and Blog. You have a talent for this. Keep it up and remember that 66 is the new 56 !!! Cheers your old friend Terry
