Re: TR 9-8 to 9-16 2017 Rock Harbor to Windigo with kayking and back.

I can't really take any credit for laying out the over all plan on the trip. My buddy Paul did all of that. The cool things was on our way back to Todd Harbor we ran into 4 guys hiking the trail who had seen a fox walking on our kayaks and got a picture of it they said they'd email us. Definitely go...

Re: first sea kayak trip advice

This is a good read. I'm going on a kayak/hike there in Sept and we're coming into Rock Harbor then around the northeast corner hoping to make it to Todd Harbor or McCargo Cove. Any suggestions or things to look out for there?

Any camera suggestions?

I'll be on a kayaking/hiking trip with it divided around 60/40 this Sept. I'd love to get some great pictures while there. I'm not bringing my cell phone and would like a camera that's rugged, can zoom out some, and at least somewhat water resistant. At the end of the day all I'm going to care is th...

This Sept, I'll be there with two guys who've been there before and are looking to relive that great experience from their past. The plan is to do a lot of kayaking and checking out the little islands, ...

Re: First timer to the IR and looking for fishing advice

The issue with fly fishing on ISRO is that many places have very little opportunity for back casting, which limits how much water can be covered from shore. This is an issue on many of the interior lakes like Chickenbone, Hatchet, Ritchie, Desor (if there are any game fish still there), etc. A spin...

First timer to the IR and looking for fishing advice

Hello everyone, I'm going to be visiting the IR in Sept ish of 2017. I'm going with a couple of other guys who've been there once before, but this will be my first time there. My fishing goals are pretty simple since this isn't a dedicated fishing trip. The idea would be something I get to do maybe ...
