Wireless broadband connectivty on the ice

5 posts in this topic

Ocassionally work requires me to get connected to the Internet even on days off. Knowing I was going to be on the ice when this occurred I bought a aT&T wireless broadband card. Anyone else have one? I'm trying to find out how good the coverage is. I'll fish in the Brainerd area, Mille Lacs, Upper Red and around Bemidji. If anyone has any info I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Depends on if you get cell phone coverage out there too. I have an iPhone, and I can get the data coverage everywhere I can get cell phone coverage. Most of the Brainerd area gets pretty decent coverage.

If you fish close to shore, or close to some homes ask them if you can connect to their wifi networks. I have actually been pretty surprised how many wifi networks you can access on certain areas of Gull.

Chode is correct. If you get cell service/signal you can use the broadband wireless card for internet access. AT&T is pretty good up here as far as coverage goes so I would think you shouldn't have too many issues.

I know AT&T will not work at Redlake.

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.

      There's a few really good cat spots in that stretch.  It won't be long and it will all be open.
