Default TC to lake charlevoix??

hey guys, so i have never made the trip from traverse to lake charlevoix and have always wanted to. now that i have my 251 i feal that it is more than doable. any advice on what to watch for?no wake zones? places to hang out? places to see? let me know! i have a friend coming up from indianapolis bringing his zt280, and another friend might drag his 283 convincor up from cincinati around early august. we were also thinking about heading out to beaver island if the weather cooperates, any advice for a good day on the island would be appreciated as well

If you're leaving from west bay stay clear of the east shore, the water gets pretty thin north of power island and at the tip around the light house.

After you pass power island on west bay Im pretty sure your not going to find much till you get to lake char. Thats where the fun is. If my boat was back in the water I would say look me up.

Keep a open eye for can outside of Fishermans Island, can get very shallow on the inside. In Lake Charlevoix head for Oyster Bay, 2nd bay once you past Coast Guard station on North side.

If you look on charts there is a red can in front of cement factory, the next can towards TC is off the North West corner of Fishermans Island.
