Is there any chance of picking up a radio station carrying a playoff game this weekend while on the lake? If so, what station?

You might be able to pick it up in French. ;\) I kind of doubt you'll get any of the games though. There's a decent country station that comes in ok otherwise not too much to pick from.

When I was up in December, I could get the country station at ~92 FM. On AM I could get one that had KFAN on it. We hoped to get a pro football game but all they did was talk football and give updates to the games. Maybe the playoffs will be different. If I remember it was in the lower half of the dial.

Thanks for the info. I sure hope we can get it in, but if not, so be it. Hope the fish are biting.

Sundays all church till 11:00 so bring something else to listen to, unless you going to pray for the fish to bite!

My son and I were lucky. On Sunday we had a good bite until 10:00 and didn't think of turning the radio on until about 11:00.

Up there this past weekend 5 miles over Pine and had to duck into the truck from our sleeper a few times to check the Packers score (I'm a big cheesehead ;). I could pick up 1130AM on the radio which had coverage of the game - the signal wasn't great but good enough to catch the score.

I believe that sirius radio has the football games. Xm and sirius satellite radio have both been a good thing for us in our remote areas. I opted for XM for the baseball coverage.

Sirius radio is the way to go. We too were over pine and listened to the Packer Game on WTMJ 620 out of Milwaukee. Turn it on in the truck and tune it in on the radio in the fish house.

What can be better than the Walleye's hiting good and Packers kicking some butt.

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
