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.

      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.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
