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

      I have not been on Rainy much as of late. On June 12, I got 75 walleyes in about 6-8 FOW. On. June 15 (Sanctuary opener) I hit Stangi for several hours and only got four fish. June 17, got 20 fish in about five hours - mostly walleyes on a weed edge in about 8 feet of water. Many on jig with Lunker CIty trailers. Also some good ones on a feather jig. Bass were few and far between. Plus some pike but nothing huge. Biggest walleyes 24-25". Bass 18", pike 29". View my fishing report to see videos of lures that were working.   I did mark lots of fish in deeper water but they were dink walleyes so I did not fish them for long.The dinks are actually harder to catch on lures than bigger ones. They respond better to live bait which I don't use.

      We had a good bite on 1/2 crawlers today! Boated 45 walleyes and kept our limits of fish that were all between 15-1/2" and 19-3/4 "! Released at least 6 slot fish. Largest was a fat 25-1/2 inch fish. Best over all sized fish limit all summer! The walleyes were stuffed with either May fly nymphs or molted crayfish.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
