I've been asked many times how we get boats back into the portage lakes we like to fish. The easiest method is the one Susanne and I used today. Towing it in across the snow is no problem. We did encounter one tight spot on the trail where we had to tilt the boat a bit to get through. Dig the old boat with a shovel and haul it back home. The "new" boat is bigger, doesn't leak, and even has floor boards to make standing up a bit easier. Now all we need is May to roll around and for the fishing to begin!
