A few weeks ago we wrapped-up the fishing season on Beaver Island. It was a very cool summer, with water temperatures plummeting back to cold whenever the wind switched and unfortunately the wind shifted often.
Turbulent conditions makes for unhappy fish that just stay deep. This isn’t to say that we didn’t have many good days and many good fish but it was a tougher summer than usual.
Below are some pictures I liked from this summer that didn’t make it onto Third Coast earlier. The one is of a huge ship’s anchor I found while scouting one day. Asking around later, with the lower and clearer water, the anchor seems to be a new find.
