Fishing without fear in the ceaseless blue of Lake Michigan in the 1980s appears idyllic in this postcard view of the Sheboygan Harbor. DNR-posted warnings about the health risks of consuming fish caught in Lake Michigan more than one per month (due to PCB and mercury contamination from the boom of manufacturing along the great lakes) makes such a scene elegiac in the 21st century.
