I saw a fin on the surface and swung towards it to check it out, then just glided when I got close. Here's my GPS log for the trip. It ha...

Hey, if we don't see you at the Pie in the morning, stop by and say hi just before paddling across the hole. We'll be in the 'gut' with the AMC class. Just a couple hundred yards out of your way, if that. Slack water ~1000.
