Blue-green algae

Recommended Posts

Signs read "Water Polluted with Blue-Green Algae" at my chosen fishing spot at Hamilton Harbour.  I didn't even know there was a big algae bloom out there until the sun came up and I could see what I was fishing in!  lol

I read a recent Spec article that said the Great Lakes are about 2 or 3 degrees warmer than average and how it was globally related, and there wasn't much that could be done about it.  So me thinks this is going to be the norm every summer.  Too bad because I hate fishing in the stuff.  Besides the health risks, it discolours your line and is pretty gross looking.

Well, time to look for 'cleaner' venues, until the colder temps dissipate the algae.  The bite will pick up too, so better days ahead!
