GVSU comes to the Dam to Dam Ice Fishing Tournament
The annual Dam to Dam Ice Fishing Tournament had special guests this year, as twenty-three GVSU Honors students packed the ice to collect fishing stories and to learn about the Muskegon River. The class, HON280 Making Waves: Water in a Changing World, began the day with a tour of Hardy Dam. They then headed to Croton, with students circulating among tournament participants, interviewing ice fisherman about fishing culture and practices. The interviews will be compiled into edited videos, which will be posted to YouTube later this spring.
Among the GVSU participants were three local residents: Professor Tara Hefferan of Croton and students Maggie Degen and Lauren Ferris, both of Fremont.
