Nice little report. Thanks for sharing. Sounded like you guys travel pretty quick. Glad you were able to catch fish and have some tasty meals with them.

Thanks for the report. How was the fishing with 3 (space, etc.)? I am leery of doing that. I am afraid one of us will end up with a hook stuck in them somewhere from somebody else. But I have a friend who really really really wants to single portage AND use only one canoe when there are 3 of us going. And we love to fish.

Trust, but verify. The Lord will provide !!!!

It worked fine fishing with the MNIII. I actually like it because you can take turns paddling and two people can just concentrate on fishing. It doesn't take much paddling to work a shoreline or reef and the guy in the back could always just drag a jig or something if the wind was keeping his hands on the paddle.

so... 2 people get to fish while one steers. Not the scenario I would care for, to be honest.

Trust, but verify. The Lord will provide !!!!
