Great report! Glad the wind and no rain and fishing worked out.

That largemouth looks like a Florida bass! So fat.

I will paddle eternal, Kevlar and carbon.

Beautiful pictures. Sounds like a great trip and the portage challenge always makes for great stories.

My hat's off to you and your crew for tackling those long (muddy) portages! Beautiful pics of the lakes you were on as well. Thanks for the trip report.
