Spring Schoolship May 26 - 29, 2009

Hauling back the trawl

This week the water warmed slightly in Suttons Bay (47 - 50 deg. F), and the round goby has re-established itself in the near-shore waters. Goby catch per 10-minute trawl averaged 34, with a high of 70 in one trawl. We also caught 68 spottail shiners in that same trawl. Secchi disk transparency averaged 17 meters, down from last week due partly to some very windy days. Schools this week included TC Central Grade School, Clare 4th grade, Van Hoosen 7th (Rochester) - 4 classes, Interlochen Elementary, Trinity Luthern (Toledo) and St. Mary's (Hannah).
We hosted 8 classes aboard Manitou this week: Central Grade School, Lakeland 4th (Elk Rapids), Van Hoosen 7th (Rochester) - 4 classes, Glen Lake 8th, and Mason 5th grade.
