Great first trip!
Sounds like a great first trip! I was on Wind the week before and we did very well fishing the bays and shorelines for Smallmouth. We caught 110 fish in 3 days! Well worth returning to and conquering that lake. I too have portaged my kayak into Wind and found it to be equally unpleasant. Post pics of your progress on your canoe!
Fun read, sounds like a great time. Thanks!
Very nice report, looks like you’re hooked. I’m jealous of your 2 hour drive.
Thanks, enjoyed your trip report - sounds like you really enjoyed it.
Hey! Great report. Loved your writing style and reflection, government worker talk and all. I hope you are able to paddle and help protect this special place for years and years! Paddle on!

Yes, nice report. Kayaks are very popular on the water... not so much on the portage.
Nice report and yet another that vows to never take a kayak on portages again :)
Just an excellent trip report. Welcome to the clan. I'm sorry (happy) to report that even moving out of state for a few decades will not cleanse your blood of this particular pathogen. You are incurably infected now. ;-)
Thanks for sharing your trip and welcome to BWCA.Com. It sounded like a really fun trip and I hope you have many more great trips. I wish I had the time and patience to build a Cedar Strip Canoe (hopefully someday). Good luck finishing yours and safe travels.
