I assume you don't mean right now??? It's a tad cold out here on our Big Lake .

I sail out of Thunder Bay, but have never gone that far south along the west shore. Have jumped from the Apostles over to Grand Marais, but never down to McQuade. However, i have driven the shore and checked out all the safe harbours. They all look easy to access.

Looking at the GLCC reference, it says there are docks in as of 2011, but it appears you can also anchor behind the breakwall. The holding may be questionable though. It is described as solid rock. A dock looks pretty appealing in those circumstances.
