Fourth generation commercial fisherman Mike Valley, of Valley Fish and Cheese, Prairie du Chien, was the presenter at March’s Second Fifty senior social gathering. He debuted his locally-produced documentary, “Beneath the Ice,” which showcases his own ice fishing operations of building, setting and raising nets. He talked about commercial fishing history in the area and described his personal daily escapades. He said he typically catches between 3,000 and 4,000 pounds of fish a week. About 800 pounds of live fish equates to 225 smoked. Though carp is his business’ top smoked seller, he said he hasn’t caught one carp all year. Rather, he’s bringing in others such as catfish, buffalo, crappies and perch. He shared his belief that the river is very different today than it used to be and that it is constantly changing, due to the increased number of fishermen and their approach to fishing as well as other factors such as climate and weather patterns, sediment, etc. (Photo by Correne Martin)
