Nice trip. Nice fish and way to go on making the adjustment with the stinger hook.


Do you prefer the Seneca over the Souris River 18.5?

So far I think I do prefer the Seneca over the Quetico 185. It seems to run a little faster. Both seemed pretty stable in the water.

I'm wondering if I misread your trip report, nice trip by the way.


The portage from Fall to Ella Hall is inside of the BWCA so as I understand it portage wheels are illegal.


Cheers

As Duboly stated, you can use portage wheels on this portage because it is part of the four mile portage from Fall Lake to Basswood

Great report! And I do love those hats you guys had on.


Nice fishing too and wow, that's one heck of a sonar for a canoe! I loved the Seneca the few times we needed to rent a 3 person canoe. Plenty of capacity for 3 adults and gear but still handled well

Yeah, It's actually part of my Livescope setup for ice fishing but figured if I have the transducer and head unit I might as well retrofit it to my canoe!


Works awesome!
