Now I live on a lake


Recommended Posts

Pleased to hear things are getting back to normal, flooding just isn't funny!!

We were flooded in 2001 and it was a 6 month job to get us almost back to normal and we only had a couple of inches of water right through the house.

 

That little creek looks the business in Jan's photos, what does it have in it fish wise?

Chubs mostly, although steelhead and suckers are around. In October we get a run of chinook salmon out of Lake Michigan and they bed on the gravel:

Wow. That's gonna leave a mark. Hey, I fished Lake Michigan today - the launch docks were nearly submerged, and there were a lot of logs and things washed into the lake from the rivers. Flotsam and jetsam. Incidentally, just what the h is flotsam and jetsam, anyhow?

Flotsam = large floating debris such as logs, wrecked vessels, dead cows, etc.

 

Jetsam = smaller crud. Originally items dumped from ships but now, any floating or slowly sinking trash too small to class as Flotsam.

OK. Now tell me this: is there such a thing as a smithereen, and if so, what is it?

Our Midwest weather continues to be a little on the nasty side.

And a Wisconsin 270 acre lake that went from full to mud in a few hours.
