Lost a couple handcrafted paddles coming off Knife on Sat. 5/26/24 They would be on the north arm east of thunder point, possibly even to little knife. These are very clearly hand made and have big fat paddles. They will have the initials WH carved into the paddle. If found please let me know so I can arrange to get them. Thank you and stay safe out there!

Small silver pocket knife left at a Quetico campsite: Campsite on western shore, mouth of bay leading to Yum Yum Portage on Kahshahpiwi (site ZE?).

It's about 1200meters due north of the Yum Yum portage landing, about 400m north of the narrow point of the bay; it's also about 500m west of the McNiece portage.

We left there May 23rd.

I originally posted this in the 2023 Lost & Found thread because I was looking in the wrong subforum. It's in the Listening Post instead of Trip Planning.
This would have been on Thursday, June 20th, mid day that he left it behind.
Hi folks, we just got back to Ely after a great trip with my Scout troop. One kid realized way too late that he was missing his fishing pole. It should be at the Gibson Lake end of the portage from Ashigan to Gibson Lake. It's a black and red rod with a tan baitcasting reel. If found email
Thanks a ton!

Believe we lost a small, black Canon digital camera on the non-motorized portage at Entry Point #1, Lake Vermillion to Trout Lake. Would be in a padded zipper case. Truly most interested in recovering the images. Thanks!

I lost my GoPro11 on Marabeouf near campsite #431. It is connected to a mount that is meant to hang around the neck. If you connect to it via Bluetooth, it is titled with my last name and my phone number. I also lost a pair of white sunglasses on the portage at Sag Falls. Yes…this was the trip I was losing everything.

Lost 7-5-24

I lost my black knife with a plastic sheath going to or coming from Eddy Falls and Ogish, It's a long shot but I thought I'd toss it out there to see if any magic shows..

Great trip either way!
