Artical from the AP!

DULUTH - A Duluth woman was rescued from the frigid waters of Lake Superior on Sunday after she fell from the deck of a 30-foot sailboat while sailing alone, the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office said.

Julie Ann Rosen, 52, was recovered from the water after the sailboat was spotted grounded just south of the Aerial Lift Bridge shortly before 5 p.m., Sgt. Wade Rasch said. She was in the water for about an hour.

The sheriff's Rescue Squad located Rosen, who was not wearing a life jacket, swimming about 1,000 yards from the boat. She was taken by ambulance to St. Mary's Medical Center for treatment of hypothermia.

Gotta hand it to the Sheriff's Dept and their quick response - sure hope she learned her lesson about life jackets, especially when you're out on the water by your self.

I'm always amazed at the kind of job the water patrols, USCG/Sheriff's Dept do for us. They are top-notch!

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
