The Great Lakes are known for delicious freshwater fish.
Before the white man came, Native Indian tribes supplied their needs with fresh and dried fish from these lakes.
Later, others joined in the fishing business, many of them from the Scandinavian countries.
In the 1800's sailing ships transported hundreds of barrels of salted fish from nearby St. Helena Island to Chicago and Detroit.
In the early 1900's passenger ships stopped at St. Ignace and picked up fish for their guests. Daily trains also picked up tons of fish to deliver on their routes to New York.
Now in the 2000's commercial fishing is still carried on, mostly by Native American fishermen.
