So hard to remember, that was oh so many years ago, before the US salvage laws went into effect that say anything you bring up belongs to Uncle Sam. We were out diving a couple of times a week for a couple of years, Danny J had a boat and we'd go to Lake Michigan. In the winter we would ice dive in Phantom Lake, Devil's Lake, Lake Geneva, Lake Delevan and, yes, Pearl Lake. There were some fantastic finds in Lake Geneva in the winter. It was too dangerous to dive in the summer with all the boat traffic.
OK Back to your local broadcasting of MOST GROSS FOODS!
I love treasure hunting and I know you do also. Those are some super finds. Once while fishing off the horseshoe pier at montrose harbor on Lake Michigan a diver surfaced and handed us two small tackle boxes and some other stuff.
That was many years ago also. Same pier had a tidal wave/sunami go over it and caused some fishermen to drown. My fater and I were there just hours befor it happened. While we were fishing the water began to rise like we had never ever experienced it befor. Made my father very concerned and made us pack up and leave for home. Later in the evening on the news they anounced the freak occurance of what they called a SEIGE.
