TV Reception ??

4 posts in this topic

Is there much for TV reception when on the lake in the Morris Point area ?, Tends to get to be a long evening sometimes after the fish stop biting in the sleeper and just can't consume and play cards like a guy used to...

I was out of Adrians Sat/Sun/Mon this weekend and set-up an antenna on the roof of my fishhouse this year. In the past I have never gotten good signal, but this year it was great(considering). I think I got 3-4 channels(some repeats), like 53, 56, 59, 61...can't remember the stations exactly, ..but I got to watch the football games sunday, hoping for the same this weekend.

Black; There are two translaters (repeaters) for a the major networks. One south of Baudette and one from Williams. They are there to cover most of Lake of the Woods, depending what area you are in. Both repeators carry all of the networks, so when you get one station, the other two will be there too. You need a UHF antenna and point it toward either repeater. They are in the fifty and low sixty UHF channels. Also there is sometimes signals from Winnepeg on the regular channels. I think they are #5 and possibly #6. You again have to point your antenna in the direction of the station. Some of the omni antennas do not have enough gain to pull them in, but dependong on conditions you get from a snowy to a clear picture. The longer the antenna the more gain. I had a 7' multi band one and it worked quite well. When the fishing get slow, start at channel 53 and rotate the antenna toward those towns. Once you get a station, slowly move the antenna back and forth for the best picture. You'll need a fully charged battery or a small generator for the bet setup.. Kaz

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
