Moose Madness And Lake Superior Fish

Minnesotans are expected to arrive to the North Shore this weekend during the annual fall break for most of the state’s schools.

The Minnesota Educator Academy weekend, more commonly referred to as MEA weekend, means that most students in Minnesota have Thursday and Friday off. It’s a popular time for families to visit Cook County and the North Shore. It’s also a great time to see wildlife near Lake Superior and across Superior National Forest. Among the species many people hope to see this time of year are moose.

That also happens to be the theme of a family-friendly event taking place in Cook County all weekend known as Moose Madness.

As the commercial fishing season slowly starts to wind down on Lake Superior, WTIP Outdoor News Podcast co-host Joe Friedrichs checked in with Katie Mumm, a local photographer and the owner of Dockside Fish Market in Grand Marais, to learn more on these topics.
