A popular souvenir for tourists who visit Bayfield today is a tee-shirt emblazoned with the adage, “The Lake is the Boss.” Veteran fisherman Julian Nelson coined the phrase while recounting some of his adventures in a lifetime spent on Lake Superior.

Anyone who ventures onto the lake more than few times, by sailboat, powerboat, or kayak understands this truth. Join historian Bob Mackreth for a look at some memorable occasions when mortal men and women learned that Gitche Gummee always has the final word.
