Petersen Muskegon Buddy B Easter-9589

The Buddy B – one of the Petersen’s trap net boats – returns to Muskegon

 

A big part of Joel’s world is the family fishing operation in Muskegon, about 150 miles to the south of Leland. Over the past few weeks, they have been setting nets, to ramp up for the whitefish-fishing season. These photos are from Easter morning when the men returned to Muskegon after a very early morning to set another net. Joel will begin operating the Joy once the Muskegon work flow is going. He also waits for the cladophora (algae) – very present in the waters near Leland – to dissipate before setting nets here. Impatience here could simply lead to a net that could be part of the Pirates of the Caribbean set, twine tangled in cladophora and, apart from being very heavy to lift, doesn’t fish as well as clean mesh. That’s your Meggen’s Monday insight! Enjoy your day. It promises to be a beautiful one here. Happy Earth Day!
