Cell phones on LOW

13 posts in this topic

Which providers work on the big pond? All I know is that my ATT didn't work last year.

anyfishwilldo can’t help you on the cell phone. I like your avatar. My dad is 93 years young and he belonged or is still is to the 49rs for years! All the benefits that help on medicine and DR appointments are a must now days! smile.gif

Midwest wireless now Alltel has worked good. I've been going to LOW for about the last 6 years and always had cell coverage.

I was shocked that my sprint phone worked everywhere I was on LOW. Usually that thing is worthless. Cuts out every time I walk into a store but works in the middle of nowhere, go figure...

Have verizon and get OK service in the Pine Island, Morris Point and Zipple areas but if you get over towards Long Point, it gets iffy, with no service on shore.

I have Verzion and it works all over the lake, even inside my aluminum fish house. When I'm out as far as the Angle, I still have good coverage. I was with AT&T, it didn't do so well inside the house at Wheelers, but now I have good signal in every room and with the digital signal system, the battery will last for a couple of days instead of just 8 hours..

Last time I was up there the nextel stoped working just north of Grand Rapids. Verison works out there I do know that.

When in doubt, Sat. Phone. that will always work. wink.gif

Rocky,

Sorry my T-mobile did not work on LOW. I also have verizen and that worked very well in zippel bay.

Got a Midwest Wireless (now Alltel) phone for three years just for LOW and Upper Red. It works but will come in and out at times. From that phone I can check my T-Mobile messages which only worked once at Zippel on land atop the sleeper house clearing snow off it.

My Uncle had an ATT&T phone work great up there last year and the year before. If your phone isn't CDMA your coverage is limited. Got an older Motorola phone off Ebay recently and it's not CDMA and won't work past I35 much.

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you

      Hi everyone I am new to this chat. I was wondering what stage you think the panfish are in right now anything helps. Thanks Luke

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.
