Hokenson Brothers Fishery
In 1927, the Hokenson brothers (Leo, Roy, and Eskel) began life as fishermen. For more than 30 years, they met the challenges of fishing the largest lake in the world, relying on their skills, strength, and ingenuity to make a living for their families. Follow the path to find the buildings and tools they used to catch, clean, and market fish.
The marker is located at Little Sand Bay Recreation Area and Campground, adjacent to a parking lot road adjacent to Little Sand Bay Harbor at the entrance to a parkway leading to Hokenson Fishery Kayak Launch, and is accessible from Little Sand Bay Road, Bayfield, Wisconsin 54814.
