Caseville Harbor Looked Like Fishtown

This shot looks out to Saginaw Bay from the interior harbor on the Pigeon River. The only building that remains today is the Huron Yacht Club on the left. The Bay Post Fish Company dock on the far right was torn down in 2017 to make way for updates to the Saginaw Bay Marina. 

The shot has amazing similarities to the famous Fishtown in Leland County in Northwest Michigan. Caseville harbor was home to a lumber mill, salt block, an iron foundry, and several fishing companies.

    I remember two fish places,,,, the one we use to go to was Giliahams or something…. use to love walking thru the place wiht all kinds of fish on ice… we use to get Herring .. and take them home and clean them and freeze them……. caught our own perch of course. as a kid in scouts we fished off the dock or channel there and got a mess of fish,,,,,,, never knew what happened to all the ones we caught, I bet our den mother kept them for themselves lol.
