Lake Superior Herring Fishing
We drove around Lake Superior and through the north shore countless times while getting the interviews and photos for our book Lake Superior Flavors (University of MN press).
By far, the experience that will stick in my memory forever was the 3 hours I spent on a herring skiff off of Knife Island.
Between the low skiff and documenting fisherman Steve Dahl, it was all I could do to keep my equipment dry and away from prying gulls. But sunrise over Knife Island is no joke, and neither is herring fishing.
