Read what the State of Michigan Wolf Lake rep told me about their underwater FishCam. Is it a waste of money?
Wolf Lake's new FishCam boasts views of lake sturgeon, Chinook salmon, steelhead trout, northern pike, northern muskellunge, walleye, largemouth bass and a variety of sunfish.
Personally I didn't see much at all, maybe just some shadowy fish wiggling in the top corner of the screen once or twice. This screen shot shows what I saw. I thought it was a waste of money so I contacted the state.
They're nearby so take their tour anyway to hear the story of the Great Lakes Fisheries. Visit the Wolf Lake State Fish Hatchery Visitor Center to learn more.
Shana Ramsey, Interpreter at Wolf Lake Hatchery, got back to me and told me the FishCam is a challenge. "Algae and water clarity can also impact the views we get on the camera. Some days are certainly better than others!" she told me.
Shana said she'd tell the company running the FishCam, Carbon Media, about my complaint so now, as I check back a few weeks later, I get some great views.
I CONTACTED THE STATE. THEY MADE CHANGES. Click here to see their new improved FishCam. The second screen shot is my Facebook post. Try out their FishCam then go to aroundvanburen at Facebook and tell me what you think.
