It's the icon of the North Shore of Lake Superior and it's celebrating 100 years!  On this big birthday for Split Rock Lighthouse, join Jason Davis as he brings to life its fascinating history, complete with tales of the most dramatic shipwrecks!   Plus, Jason goes angling with the Minnesota man who has kept the fishing traditions in the waters around the lighthouse alive.
