Beneath the Surface A Natural History of a Fisherman's Lake






Pub Date: 
Publisher:  Minnesota Historical Society Press
Summary: Each summer millions experience the beauty of Americars" s lakes- the whirl of sights and sounds as boats cut through the water and birds call to each other from surrounding trees. Now biologist and ichthyologist Bruce M. Carlson takes nature lovers to the side of the lake that few will experience firsthand- a dynamic world where fish feed and spawn, loons dive deep to snap up perch, and light disappears one waveleng...th at a time before reaching the ink-blue bottom. With clear-eyed and engaging prose, "Beneath the Surface" explores the inner workings of Ten Mile Lake in Cass County, Minnesota. And from this intimate study, complemented by elegantly detailed illustrations in pencil, ink, and watercolor, we learn how the physical characteristics of a lake affect the plants and animals within it and how the various forms of life inhabiting a lake interact. Carlson explores how the dynamics of a lake shift from day to night and from season to season. He outlines the effects of a storm on the wildlife below and explains the impressive intricacies of a beaverrs" s lodge design. And through special chapters that reveal the rhythms and constraints of various species of fish, Carlson shows anglers how to hone techniques to heighten fishing success. Bruce M. Carlson regularly contributes articles to "In-Fisherman "magazine that integrate scientific principles with fishing techniques. He holds a masters degree in ichthyology and an MD-PhD with a focus on regeneration from the University of Minnesota. He has been fishing and studying Ten Mile Lake since 1955. Bruce Granquist specializes in ecological illustrations and cartography. His work has beenwidely published in Southeast Asia.
