Customer came out at Lake One yesterday around 10 am. Another car pulled up, sort of blocking his view from his two Sealine bags. (not that driver's fault).

He had a yellow Sealine Baja 55L bag and a "Big Blue Sealine bag too.

They were sitting near each other.

If anyone saw these or brought them to the WELY radio station or the Forest Service building, please let me know. I'll forward any info to him.

He lives in Chicago and is a firefighter.

Found a pair of knee pads near the Temperance lakes. We had passed a couple solo canoes from Sawbill not too long before, so maybe they were theres? If they are yours and you want them, let me know.

I had a group come in that said they had a pack taken off a tree and it was missing. I thought immediately a bear. But this is what they told me;

They were camped (second day) on Wind (see attached map). They hung all 3 packs up with separate ropes on separate trees. They went out to fish. They came back to camp around 11 am and noticed a bag was missing. I think they said the rope had been untied.

They searched around the campsite & into the woods but no spot of it and no sign of a bear getting into it, unless it dragged it really far off.

It was an Ocean Pack brand /waterproof bag, black with white lettering, 30L. Also has “Olsen” written in yellow paint pen along the top edge (where it rolls to make it watertight.

It was the pack with some of the food, mostly fish breading, oil, & I think other misc. items. All 3 packs had food in them, only one was taken.

The customer was Tim Olsen, from New London Wisconsin;

Lost a cross necklace that has nothing but sentimental value. Left it at campsite on the right hand side just before the .5 rod portage before monument portage on Canadian side coming in from American Point. Should be laying in front of the fire pit where we sat for a fire. If found, please text 920-427-3061. Thanks

Found a pair of prescription sunglasses in the water on Gabi this week. They were pink frames and had no case but stayed in my camera case for the rest of the trip so they are unbroken. Write me if they are yours.

Somehow I managed to leave my favorite hot weather portage shirt at a campsite near the SW corner of Lake Agnes via Moose River North entry. It's a lightweight Patagonia nylon Men's Medium LS light tan color button down shirt with the inside lower tags cut off. Left it in excellent condition on the rock behind the fire grate on June 9th. Weather was so extremely hot on this trip that I didn't notice it missing for several days, then returned to site to check for it but it was gone already.

Happy to pay postage plus a nice tip to whomever may have found it.

Thanks!

Hey! We found it, along with a pair of sandals.
Where are you located?

Hey Speck007, that's great news--thank you!

I checked with my trip partner and he has his sandals, so the pair you found must belong to another party that used the site after we did. I'm messaging you off the board with my address for the shirt.

Many thanks!!!

Hey All, Unfortunately Speck's discovery wasn't my item after all.

If anyone found a Men's LS Patagonia lightweight button down shirt at a camp near the SW corner of Lake Agnes (left it there on 6/09/21 per older message above), please message me off the board. Thanks in advance!

Lost a water bottle (has sentimental value) at the Moose Lake side of the Found Lake portage on 6/21. It's a nalgene with stickers. Might have rolled into Moose Lake? Or just into the bushes. Not sure, but if anyone happens across it....

Hey folks, I left a homemade banjo behind on Seagull lake this morning. I believe it was left on the southernmost island site in the motor zone on that lake, although it could have been on the island site just west of that. If anyone sees it or grabs it please let me know!

If someone who's going to be near there can contact me, we can tell you just where to look to find it. A beautiful spot. Would love to have the phone back, and will happily pay postage and reward the retrieval! Randy E., 303-519-6464.

$200 reward if found soon (before it's damaged by rain)! Specifically, I believe I set my iPhone down while collecting water from the shore around the corner (just a few steps... maybe 10-20?) from the main place people would normally go to water's edge from the campsite. So if you walk down the rocky slope to the water from the campfire\cooking area, and go left (out toward open lake\away from sandy beach), I believe its right there, within 4 feet of water. I would so appreciate getting it back because I have some precious BW photos on it (call hubby at 303-519-6464). Thank you for reading this post.

Well all bwca boaters, the phone has been found! It was in fact tucked in the tent net pocket and packed up with the tent! Our daughter decided to have a sleepover camp-out in the back yard, and she found the phone when she set up the tent! She's aware of the $200 reward - should she get it?

Enjoy the lakes and islands and eagles, everyone!

Sorry about the late post, but found a nice Rainjacket Thursday June 17th somewhere between 11 and 12 o'clock. We were heading into Moose from Knife, was either on the short portage into Carp or from carp into Birch. PM me and describe and I'll send it to you

Found: on portage between Ensign and Boot Lake (closer to side of portage near Ensign) a pair of glasses, on July 4th.

Customer found them, brought them to us (at VNO) so I could get this message out & maybe someone will see this who owns them.

They might just be "readers" because they are marked "China" and say +1.0, 2mm

The lenses are sort of rectangular, look more like a man's glasses.

Lost: four fishing poles on portage between brule and Vernon. Two kids poles and two adult poles. Had a medical emergency and got the poles hopelessly tangled in the trees. Was too freaked out and didn't think about just cutting the fishing line so ended up leaving poles behind in my rush to get my daughter to medical help. She is doing fine now. But if anyone finds the poles it'd be nice to have to them back. Let me know if anyone finds them.

LOST: Ugly Stick Big water trolling rod. It had an abu Garcia reel with a digital line counter. Lost Friday July 9th around 11am Entry point 16. We went back to entry point 16 around 1:00 to look for it, and met a man who said that some people leaving the boundary waters asked if it was his then when he replied no they took the rod. He said they may have had an outfitter worker with them. We are hoping someone is holding it for me. This rod has great sentimental value and if anyone knows anything about it please contact Cam 612-559-1526. Thank you

Lost: Cell Phone (Iphone SE) in Waterproof Plastic case with "Piragis" logo. Lost yesterday, July 14th 2021 somewhere between Thomas and Ima. We stopped for a quick break once we finished the Hatchet Creek section into Ima, so it is likely on the landing that faces West across Ima. Please let me know if your group found this phone and we were lucky enough that you picked it up!

Hi, we lost a cell phone & dry bag on Friday 7/16 on Poplar Lake, somewhere between the NW landing and the portage into Lizz. I went back and checked the landing, not there. Also no luck reaching out to Rockwood (which had a bunch of paddlers heading out that morning, hoping someone found it.) Finally, no luck at the Gunflint Ranger District office.

Happy to provide more information if you found it! Aside from a lost phone, we had a great five days in the wilderness.

Send me a PM if you are the owner. We had passed just 2 groups heading north on the Kawishiwi River earlier in the day, one group with 2 canoes (mixed gender group) and another group with 1 canoe (2 guys). Did it belong to one of you?
