A few good days of sunny weather has allowed local anglers to get out on the big Lake. Abundant rainfall this spring has brought the lake level up so that it's possible to get out at Harbor Beach City Marina. The city has also recently purchased a barge so that dredging and other maintenance issues can be done locally rather than depend on third party vendors. Dredging companies have been swamped with requests for their services since the State of Michigan has released $21 million in funds for dredging harbors around the State.
In recent years spring fishing has been excellent with a wide variety of species caught. The silver fish tend to be in the area for a few weeks in the spring and then many migrate to other areas. Chinook Salmon, Brown Trout, and Lake Trout are all being caught right now just outside the harbor. The attached photo show the results of a trip on Wednesday May 2, 2013. Local Thumb Chapter Steelheaders, Al Elzinga, Craig Eitner, and Jack Kelley are shown with their catch. There were one Lake Trout, one Brown Trout and the rest were Kings.
Fisherman will be everywhere this weekend as the Can2Can tournament will be in town on Saturday for their big event. If you want to see some big fish, come to the weigh-in at 2:00.
On Monday, May 6 at 6:30 p.m. the Harbor Beach Friends of the Library present a Ladies Night Out Double Header. The event includes a Spring Fashion Show by Darlene's Fashions followed by the movie The Devil Wears Prada. There will be numerous door prize tickets with a donation to the Theatre digital projector fund plus special drawings if attendees wear their 2013 Harbor Beach Maritime button or buy one.
