Beautiful photo of a beautiful old Burger built 55 class. So that's a place where they dock. I was out on the Keweenaw in 2015 and I couldn't find any fish tugs. I crossed that bridge but maybe they were on the bay or lake.

Actually, this tie-up is only temporary/overnight. There are basically three locations that the guys dock in the Keweenaw Portage Canal; out near the "north entry" on the channel wall called the Lily Pond, two private docks along M-203 about 8 miles out of Hancock, just before Lily Pond), and then at the "south entry" channel wall at Portage Entry/White City.

I agree really nice photo. Red hull, bluish water and the bridge in the background make a good color scheme.

Nice job! I can see the fish tugs in the satellite views you posted. My next trip up there I will be able to find them after looking at those. It's looking like the guys at Lily Pond and the area toward the Upper Waterway Inlet, have easier access to Lake Superior. The Portage Lake, Chassell area have quick access to the Keweenaw Bay. Thank you for the easy to follow layout, Well done.

I did forget one additional docking location, although not sure who's using that location recently;
