Got a hall pass from the spouse, got the work front squared away and off I went on 9/27; out on 10/2. 5 nights, solo - me and dog Cerberus.

Entered through Prairie Portage, up Birch, Carp, Sheridan, No-Name, Magie, That Man, No Man, This Man, No Man, That Man, No-Name, Emerald, Carp, Birch, Polaris, Birch and home.

Good fishing, good weather, swimming, great scenery and some solitude.

Third trip to the Q this year, and that's a wrap for '23.

You left out the part about your personal best bass!

Great report and nice route.

I’m curious how the route from Sheridan, No Name, Magie, That Man went. Any details you care to share here? I plan to be on the Man Chain next year for the first time. Always nice to know about options in the surrounding area!

We did a northward route last summer. We went from Sheridan to That Man portage. Not too bad. a little longish and the one slippery rock. Trail was clear and pretty easy walk. The beginning of the portage on Sheridan was not easy to find. It's well before the end of the cove and not a big landing. It was the first major portage of our trip and food packs were full. So it was time consuming and for us with the triple portage.
I don't see any marked portages on the route from Sheridan through Noname to Magie. I would think it's a bushwhack at best.
