Today is the first day of fall at 9:03pm, not sure how the weather people determine that however it is arriving with quite the statement. Highs in the low 50's and dipping into the low, low forties possibly the upper 30's. To say the least it will be cold, damp and chilly! Make sure you have extra blankets, hoodies and propane!! ...

A lot of people ask Cap'n Ron where he catches his fish. One day he looked someone dead in the eye and said "The water." The he went on doing his thing.
That's Cap'n Ron for ya. We got in some real beautiful fish this morning and will start filleting them up soon. We are still open everyday down here like always. Just try to get here before 6pm because some days we are starting to close a little earlier. ... See MoreSee Less
Walt and I would like to thank everyone who fished with us this year. Thanks to you every trip is fun and different, we love watching and helping you catch fish! Our average was up this year to fourteen fish a trip! So enjoy the rest of the year and we will be here for you next spring!
We fished with you last Thursday it was a fantastic trip you put us on the fish right off the bat and caught 12 thanks again. Ate some Sunday and they were great thanks again
Thanks a million for all of the posts you shared with your successful trips Rod. I'm going to miss that, but I know what's in store for the upcoming weather and waves on L. Superior. Have a great time hunting and whatever else you do through the off-season. I'll continue to monitor any of your posts until you launch the Rainbow V again next Spring.
My best to you and your family!
The "Bay Fox"
The waves of Lake Superior were too much to tackle on Sunday but at least we got a short boat ride out of it! Short and bouncy!
We had a great time in August. Best part of my grandson’s vacation. Thank you, so much.

The regional Maintenance Action Team strike crew will be at Seney from August 8 to August 20 to rehabilitate the North Show Pool dike and start work on the Show Pool Shelter parking reconfiguration.
The existing vault toilet is closed and will be removed the week of August 8. In the meantime, a port-a-john is available for public use until the area is closed on Sunday, August 7.
A new permanent vault toilet will be installed between Aug 22 and September 9.
The Show Pool Shelter Area, including the connector trail between the Pine Ridge Nature Trail and the South Show Pool Trail, will be closed to the public Sunday, August 7 through at least September 10 due to construction.
Note: Though the breech in the Show Pool dike should be fixed by the end of this project, the south pool needs rehab work as well, so don't expect to see the Show Pools filled with water yet.

Hiking Trails Now Available at Temporary Visitor Center
The YCC crew (Youth Conservation Corp) spent a number of days clearing and marking a suitable trail for visitors to experience the nearby field, hardwood, and river habitats. The mile-long loop trail allows hikers to experience the serenity of the mature hardwood forest as well as the Manistique River at several viewing sites. There is also a half mile mowed path that circumnavigates part of an old hay field along the edge of the forest. The trails are open for use when the visitor center is open: Tuesday thru Friday, 9:00am until 4:00pm. Bug protection is recommended during summer months
RIVER PATH LENGTH: 1 mile TERRAIN: some hills, narrow, rustic SURFACE: dirt, leaf litter, uneven, firm This narrow, natural trail passes through a mix of field, forest, and river edge habitats. The terrain is uneven. Confidence markers (narrow plastic posts) help mark the path. There is a lot of variety on this relatively short trail; views of the river and multiple habitats make for an interesting walk.
FIELD ROUTE LENGTH: 1/2 mile TERRAIN: flat, 4 feet wide SURFACE: mowed vegetation, uneven, firm This trail circumnavigates the field behind the visitor center along the edge of the forest. It is wide enough for two people to walk side by side, and the edge habitat provides opportunities to see and hear a variety of birds and insects.
