Great trip despite everything you listed. That does look like a very nice site. Love the photos, too.

Thanks for the report. I have never been to that area. Your last pic made me think of a fish my husband caught. He was trolling on Kekekabic as we paddled to find a campsite for the night. He said, "Hold up, I think I picked up a weed. Or else it is a very lazy fish."


Turned out it was a fish smaller than the one you are holding up. The lure was more than half its size, but it had gone whole hog for it! A little fish with big aspirations we sent on his merry way. Watch out, he'll be a lunker some day.
