Thanks for the report! Sounds like you had a good time despite the heat. Love the ingenuity with the spatula and flipper. Everyone forgets something from time to time, it doesn’t mean you’re losing your edge. I’ll be on Stuart in 10 days, I see it’s one of your favorite lakes. Got any fishing tips to share? I’ve had success at the falls, but that’s about it. Too bad about Oyster, I’ve never had fishing luck on that lake either, although, you know the fish are there because I’ve seen pics and read trip reports where people have slaughtered them.

Thanks again,

Thanks for the report. Apparently you have also reached that age where a detailed packing checklist is necessary.

Sorry it was so hot while you were there, but it sounds like you made the best of it. Very nice trip report. Those Crappie pics make me want to head over there if nothing else!

Thanks for the report.

We were coming out of Adams one year and stopped on Polly . It was so hot and zero air movement. We found a site and decided to just hang low for the rest of the day. About 2 hours later we heard this moaning and groaning coming around the corner. It was a guy, going solo, in an old aluminum canoe. After each paddle stroke he would moan, then dip is shirt in the lake and put it over his head and then groan. He repeated the process across the entire lake. We talked about how hot it must of been with the sun reflecting off the lake and the bottom of the canoe.

Holy smokes. It wasn't that bad! Thanks for adding that little gem. I once was on Lake 3 with friends when a man paddled up solo, and lost. He kept asking us where we were....and tried to tell us where he had been. He was sunburned from face down to his bare feet. We tried to talk him into staying with us to rest but he paddled off. Thanks for reading!

Thanks for the report, we've been to that area once and had similar success on Agnes. We did not go to Oyster but instead LLC and Iron, sorry to hear about your fishing attempts there.
