A story about commercial fishing in Fishtown stated that fourth-generation fisherman Joel Petersen released 18,000 pounds of lake trout in 2017 as required through a state license owned by the Fishtown Preservation Society. Actually, Petersen tossed back 18,000 lake trout, which he estimates to have weighed about 180,000 pounds. Also, in some references Petersen’s name was spelled “Peterson.” We apologize for the errors.
