Trip Introduction:
This is my second trip to BWCA and longest trip. The other people have gone for around 20 years or more. We just found out that insula got bass in it so we decided to go there this year for our annual trip. When the other guys went there earlier there were no bass.
Day 1 of 8
Saturday, June 16, 2007- Three of us came(including me) from Wisconsing while the other three are from Minnesota. Us three camped at a campground by superior last night and we got to the station at 10:15am Saturday. We left the station at about 11:00 and made last minute stops and got out on the water at 12:45. We wanted to get to insula in one day but we werent sure of it and we thought we would make it to hudson. Weather was basically perfect with a little wind at our back. We got through the hudson-insula portage at 6:00 and decided to try to get to a campsite suggested by a person's son who said it was a 4 star. The campsite was occupied so we decided to camp at the site SE of Williamson Island at 8:30. 15 miles in one day exhausting.
