Vintage Great Lakes Angler : Aluminum Boat

From the Life Archive.

I've made it Black and White day here in the Great Lakes Angler's Studio. Monotone for February First.

This photo reminds me of many of the boats I've used on small Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota and brings back memories of hot aluminum seats, creaking oars, and soft boat cushions.


  1. Looks like a 1940's alumacraft. I have one just like it that I use on small water.

  2. I love the progression...

    If the rods, baits, and lures don't work, bring the pistol and ammo along just in case.
