Cool shots of old Detroit fishing operations

Recommended Posts

Huh. Never thought much about Detroit's commercial fishing operations, but the Detroit News has a cool historical feature this week


In the middle of the 19th century, Great Lakes fishing outfits favored pound nets, a long net system that involves pounding stakes into the lake bed, attaching the nets and trapping the fish in an enclosure. 

Nice fish!
