Thanks. I enjoyed the report and pictures. Glad you had a nice trip with your dad (you look a little like him ;) ) and your two friends. Glad you were able to get out with the broken paddle without any more trouble. You didn't say anything about rain, but I was on Polly the 9th and there was quite a thunderstorm with a vivid double rainbow. Apparently you missed that.

Enjoyed your trip report. Was thinking of going in to Stuart next spring as well with a day trip to Iron also. How deep did you find the walleye this time of year?

Walleyes were in 8-12' on both Agnes and Stuart. Caught several in 3-4' as well.

Hey, I'm going up EP 16 the same time you did last year and wanted to know how much traffic you saw going up and in general the whole weekend?
Thanks,

Thank you I enjoyed your trip report. I especially appreciated your reference to God's Country. We share the same feeling of wilderness. It's how my grandfather described it to me before a trip to Alaska 40+ years ago. Oh thanks for the fish taco recipe. I may try that here at home today.
