Two of Original founding brothers of The Kahlenberg Brothers Company of Two Rivers doing a meet and greet at yearly Menekaunee(Marinette /Menominee) Commercial Fishermans meeting.I believe they are William and John but am not certain. I also believe the photo taken in late 1940's ? Photo courtesy Charles Nylund.

Well known boat builder Jim Derusha. Jim constructed many fishing boats over the years including Art Swaer VI and VII and trapnet boat Pep.On a side note check out those prices for chubs on the sign $ .65 a pound or Lobster Tail $4.25 . A time in this country, when one paycheck could feed a family.Photo courtesy of Charles Nylund

Unnamed Fishtug in Marinette WI. Take note of the futuristic pilot house on the boat. No sun visor required.Looks as though it is a T.D. Vinette built hull. More info on this boat needed.

I've always liked the lines of this boat. It was nice to get up that way. Spent some time with Charlie Nylund and some time with Todd Ruleau as well. Todd Ruleau has set up his boat as his living quarters. An awesome idea to live in a fish tug. It's more spacious than most appartments and way cooler.

Image
The Net Worth in Bailey's Harbor,Wisconsin. These Marinette 35s were built at Marinette Marine in large numbers. There are many still in operation on most of the Great Lakes.

Image
The Algoma River the way I like to remember it. There was a healthy fleet of gillnetters and pound boats running out of Algoma,Wi. today there are none.
