Some family and friends are planning a trip up north to the boundary waters. They are talking about going about going the last part of August or the first part of September. Has anyone been there before? How do I prepare for this? Can any recommend equipment or tactics? Is there any fishing in Ohio or surrounding area that is like the fishing I will experience up there? Can a newbie fisherman expect to catch enough fish to supply the meat for dinner every night? Can anyone recommend a location to buy an expedition quality canoe paddle in central Ohio? The two wood ones, but understand that I would be happier on a long trip with a lighter, more flexible canoe paddle.
