Yep, that's the only thing I hate about Torch. Damn seaweed and the dirty water!

Looks like the weather us holding out. Putting in on Elk Lake and going down the river. Plan on being on the sandbar between 11-11:30.

Fightclub, I'll keep my eye open for ya. If you see me come on over and say hi and have a beer. That goes for anyone else that happens to be there too! Just look for yellow!

Actually, there is something I hate about Torch now! It looks like almost everyone in our group got some kind of "itch" from the water. Some worse than others. So far everyone I have talked to except for one has some red "dots" on their legs. A friend of mine got it really bad. I've been to that lake 50-60 times and never got it before.

Fightclub, I looked for you in the beginning of the day but it started getting crowded. Did you make it up?

I don't know what it is. But out of our group of about 25-30, I've talked to about 15 or so and all of them but 2 have it. Some worse than others. I just have some small red dots on my leg that don't itch at all. But a couple friends of mine have huge red bumps that are itching like crazy.

Yeah, made it back safe. Saturday was a great day. In fact so great it took all day Sunday to recover!

My wife was born and raised on Torch Lk. The dots are something called swimmers itch. Comes from duck and swan $hit if the water warms up.

We get swimmer's itch on our local lakes here but it's from snails. Someone else told me it was because the water was so warm this year. I didn't get it too bad. A couple people got it REALLY bad. And if alcohol can kill it then I wouldn't have it at all!
