Great Report. It was a short but sweet trip. I was in N. Wisconsin so it must have really been cold on your trip. Best, JerryG

Nice report, thank you for sharing. Pine can be a tough place to camp or canoe!

The best part of this journey here is further knowing yourself - Alan Kay

Enjoyed your report....I love Pine Lake
The bear incident made me chuckle....I'm sure he wouldn't have eaten both of you ;)

Thanks for the report and photos. You guys braved some tough weather conditions, but you made it happen. I too would have been creeped out by a close encounter with a bear that size. You did the right thing putting some distance between you and the bear. "Cool to see but leave 'em be."

Good Trip briefing. I was out that weekend too and the wind was relentless. We were walking the Sioux Hustler Trail.
Envious of the bear sighting.....great part of your report. Fish was vibrant.
Carry forth.

Great report!


A person really earns their stripes on those portages up to Gadwall & Vale. Loved the brookie pictures!


Thanks for taking the tine to share your story & photos.

I enjoyed your trip report. I love Pine Lake, too, but have no desire to be there when it is that cold! Brrr!


Lovely fish, and sounds like a good adventure! Thanks for sharing.

We were hoping to do well fishing at Pemmican the same weekend. Rode the waves on Clearwater and Mountain, and had to change plans and arraign to get picked up at McFarland via Moose and Fowl on Sunday, etc due to the wind/waves. Crazy big. Lucky you got in early or you may have been with that group at the first campsite! :)
