Can anyone help me out with something? We were fishing yesterday & noticed a couple newer boueys with flags extending from them. As our drift took us closer we noticed there was a rope extending as far as I can see. The area I'm talking about is south of the Fermi, just about due east of of the point. I'm just curious, I've never seen it before. Thanks

Yea, I was wondering the same thing. Thought maybe it was an upcoming racing event or something.

Those are commercial nets. They have been netting most of our side in the Western Basin. Target - Carp, although I was told a few loads of catfish were brought in.

The nets are in a bad spot!

Best be carefull fishing in that area, we heard on the radio a boat asking for assistance as he was caught up in those nets, I believe it was June 23rd.

Thanks for the info. I didn't see them last weekend, but they were there on Saturday morning.

I think a small company that docks in River Raisin, they go for carp then truck them live to NY , only bouy infront of Fermi should be their boundry/security ones

One of their net boats is out right now. Maybe they'll pull the damn thing.

They run 2 out of our marina. Yesterday one came from Maumee Bay.
