When the men who had slept on land returned to the ship at 6 AM, they were pleasantly surprised to find breakfast prepared. Mox explained that he had already been up for three hours, awoken by the waves and the strong smell of ham in the boat. As the crew finished eating, a Native American man came by their camp. He curiously inspected the camera and tripod set up on the shore, and had his picture taken.
The Abbie then continued up to Huron River Point and to the mouth of the Little Huron River, where Dr. Tappey, Howard Longyear, and E.W. Sparrow caught a total of five trout. As they headed to Point Abbaye, they were intercepted by two Mackinaw boats with Native Americans aboard who informed them the fishing was good ahead. As they passed along, J.M. Longyear caught a small trout and claimed to have narrowly missed a giant. The crew turned the claim into a rowdy joke. The ship headed west across Keweenaw Bay, through the canal, and up the Portage River.
