Re: Pleased To Announce (PAC) Phillip Anderson Collection

Looking forward to the Philly files.His photo collection has been speculated about many times by many men over the years. I never knew anyone who actually seen it.

Re: Great Lakes Fish Tugs On Lake Michigan.

A nice wooden model of a 42ft Burger fish tug. It's located on Phil Anderson'a table in kenoshe,Wi. Nor only is Philly a legend of the Lake but his house is a temple of worship for commercial fishermen. I'm very happy to have been invited. http://www.fishtug.com/forums/app.php/gallery/image/429/med...

Re: Fish Tugs Of The Green Bay Waters.

These are not really in the Green Bay Waters. They are located along highway 29 West of Green Bay. They are used as a tourist exhibit near Shawano,Wisconsin. It's sad to see fish tugs retired from the fleet never to return to the fishing grounds. It's even worse when they are used as a petty exhibit...

Re: Great Lakes Fish Tugs On Lake Michigan.

We pulled up to the LaFonds (Andy Sr and Andy Jr) It was a calm and beautiful morning, I got a bunch of shots of them lifting Whitefish. I also got a lot of really good video. I'll post some of the video and in the nexy day or so. https://s19.postimg.org/e9rfewrhf/Andy_La_Fond_And_Oliver_H_Smith_02....
