Nice pics. No cormorants (or maybe cormorant carcasses?). They are pretty aggressive birds when they are chasing fish.

I got out for the first time this year on Saturday with my seven and five year olds, and their Grandma and Grandpa. My daughter landed a 5" perch, only fish of the day. It was REALLY rough out there. We were coming back to the west bay from the north part of the lake at around 1:30 in the afternoon and the waves were crashing over the bow of the boat.

Given those conditions, the canoers are really lucky guys to have made it out of there. Really awesome that you and the jetskier were able to come to their rescue and make sure the outcome was a good one.

I know the pics don't show how choppy it was but it was..Yes they are very lucky,I was surprised that the guy in the water at the front of the canoe wasn't nearly as bad as the one guy. I guess because he was doing all the work swimming and muscling the canoe around in the water which kept his blood pumping as the other guy was just being pulled through three water..
When we got back to their dock we told there friends how lucky they were.
They wanted us to stay for a food and drinks but we were just happy it was a happy ending..
Fishing was really tuff, we asked lots of people and they all said the fishing was very slow..

It was a bit of a weird day. Standing on shore it barely felt like there was a wind. Get out 50' off shore anywhere and oh boy, was it ever choppy. And not east-west or north-south choppy, the waves were coming from every direction it seemed. At one point we drove across west bay to south bay and, as I got soaked sitting at the front, I thought "Geez, at least we'll be with the wind on the way back". Yeah, not quite. I got wetter on the way back than on the way there.
