Canal Cam update!

Update: 3/8/2018 - 14:30 --- Complete - I will be tweaking the image over the next few days.
Thanks to all who donated to the new camera.

Tomorrow Friday, March 8th, I will be working on replacing the Canal Cam between 12:00 and 16:00.  You can expect the camera to be offline during that time.  With any luck, the new cam will be up and running later in the day.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

Tales from the Harborcams - Sometimes ice fishing can be hard work

Over several hours this morning, these guys worked like crazy to get a little fishing in -- hopefully, they caught something.

Tales from the harborcams - Two Harbors Airboat 03/02/2019

I watched the Two Harbors cam on Saturday, March 2, and watched a couple men go out on the lake in an Air Boat, like they use in the Everglades. I wanted to relay the experience I had watching something so unusual. These guys worked so hard getting ready for their fishing trip and it looked like they were taking everything but the kitchen sink. I was so shocked after watching them for close to an hour when they almost "flew" out onto the lake in this Air Boat. I had to laugh thinking I would love to know what they would think about an old 85-year-old lady, who lives about 30 miles west of Baltimore, Md. had been watching this very long procedure that morning. They must be a very die-hard fisherman to go to all that trouble just to go fishing, especially in the winter time. I really enjoy all the Duluth web cams and watch them quite a lot. Especially love to watch in the summer as the big ships come into the channel. Thanks for providing such fun enjoyment.

Which saltie will be first in 2019?

This year marks the 60th Anniversary of the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway. The FIRST first ship/saltie to arrive after the St. Lawrence Seaway opened in 1959 was the Ramon de Larrinaga (arrived May 3, 1959). Get out your crystal ball and see if you can predict the exact date and time the very first oceangoing vessel (“saltie”) of the 2019 shipping season will sail into the Port of Duluth-Superior beneath the Aerial Lift Bridge. Visit the Visit Duluth Contest page HERE for more info.
