Episode 16: Lake Superior Fish

There are a small number of commercial fisherman left on Lake Superior.  I  had the pleasure of going out one morning last week with Harley Tofte, who has seen the lake and the industry change over the last 29 years.  He operates Dockside Fish Market out of Grand Marais and sells to the local restaurants (including Angry Trout Cafe).  Watch this episode to see Lake Superior in all its glory and how its Trout and Herring get to your table.

I don’t know, but every person in your videos seem so centered, so honest, so peaceful in their own skins, I find myself smiling to the point of a face ache every time I watch one of the episodes.

    Thank you for another great post. Oh, and Lake Superior? How magnificent is that vast piece of water!
