Exploring remains of an abandoned commercial fishing camp

YouTube user “MNduro USA” brought a scuba tank to an old commercial fishing operation just north of the French River on Lake Superior. “I found a couple of nice lures from modern times and an old underwater pulley system with giant winch on the hill above,” he writes on the YouTube video description. “Cable was strewn across the bottom from the day it snapped!”

This was Hjalmer Mattson's camp. People on a Two Harbors message board talk about his place.

According to a local realtor, the DNR bought the property last year. There has been some cleanup. Still looking into any plans the DNR has, save for shoring up the shoreline.
