wi-fi hotspots?

10 posts in this topic

Is there anywhere that I can connect to the internet with my laptop to keep updated with this board. I am staying at Sha-sha for the week starting this Sat.

I'm not sure if there is anyone out toward the lake that has access. (I'm sure there is somewhere out there, by now).

There is a coffee shop in town called Coffee Landing Metro that has computers in the shop for you to use. I've used the internet in there before, not sure if they have wi/fi though. And if you're into coffee they have the best...get the Rainy Lake Blend. They are on the corner of 3rd Street and 5th Ave. in downtown. Brick building with bright yellow chairs out in the front.

There is a coffee shop in the Super One store and they might have wi/fi. That place is farther down 3rd st. across from the football stadium.

There is WI-FI at the chamber of commerce building. At the three way stop (4th and 3rd) same road going towards Canada.

I believe that you can connect from the bar at Island View Lodge next to Sha Sha.

Go to Woody's pub. Get a cold beer (this won't work without it). Take the beer and your lab top out to a chair on Woody's deck over looking Sand bay. Crank up the lab top and enjoy. When you tire of this go fishing with Woody.

If Woods has wi-fi out on his deck, then that's the first place I'd be! grin.gif

Woody's Pub is 2-3 miles west of the Falls in the little town of Ranier. As you're heading out of town toward Sha-Sha, there is a big billboard type sign on your left welcoming you to Ranier. Take that left. Stay on that road and you'll see the Ranier Muni on your right, Grandma's Pantry on your left (great breakfasts---huge pancakes!), and Woody's will be up ahead on your right-hand side. As they say---you can't miss it. In fact, if you keep going straight, you'll drive right down the ramp into Rainy Lake. grin.gif

      Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active?  Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred?  The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing?  Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.

        when dont you look odd? ? ?    got ya

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.
