The crew left what they described as the worst campground of the trip and crossed the reef at a channel near Siskiwit Point amidst heavy swells. They landed on the southern point of Isle Royale and got out to stretch their legs. The lake quieted as they resumed their trip. At 7:15 PM they reached Washington Harbor, having circumnavigated Isle Royale. They encountered the captain of the steamship Taylor and made plans for the Abbie to be towed across the lake the next morning.
Howard Longyear and Mox went to a nearby smokehouse to have the largest trout of the trip, caught by Howard Longyear, smoked overnight so it could be taken home as a souvenir of the trip. However, the smoking failed and partially cooked the fish. Luckily, Mox had made an outline of the trout on a board when it was caught, and Howard Longyear planned to cut it out and paint it to make a substitute trophy.
