Towed to American Point, then set sail for Cherry Lake, did someone say the portage from Hanson to Cherry was rough? I would double down on that, that was work.
Had Cherry Lake to ourselves for the most part. What a beautiful spot. Caught so many small mouth it got boring. We left there and headed to Otterack. Had a beautiful campsite with again tremendous fishing.
It was a great trip, though the portages were hard (Saganaga-Ester, Hanson-Cherry). I would do it reverse next time and skip those two portages.
