Lake Michigan……Julian’s Reef Lake Trout research project w/ Univ Wis and Univ IL


On 09/22/2016 we helped out with the University of Illinois and University of Wisconsin, Madison researchers for a project they are working on in Lake Michigan. They are deploying egg traps on Julian’s Reef to assess the Lake Trout spawning success around that area. It turned out to be a nice calm day out on the water and a tad cloudy, but still a great day and successful deployment of all the research equipment. They will be collecting these egg traps later this fall after the spawning season.
