One look over Lake Superior and one can see the lake is clear, ice i melted in most places, making it easy to start the shipping season. Some of the fresh water ships have begun to move about. That means the "salties" will be coming in. Which brings up an interesting contest.

The Duluth Seaway Port Authority and Visit Duluth are working together to offer a prize to the person who can correctly say when the first ocean going ship crosses the canal to start the 2015 season. You don't have to be number one, the top 5 guesses are in line for rewards. The top prize will be a collection of gift certificates to area eateries and things to do.

Please submit your guess by Tuesday, March 31, one per person.
