I had Cell 2000 until they were purchased by Verizon. I have never had a problem with them from Riverbend Resort all the way to Knight and Bridges. My son has TMobile and he can't get anything out on the lake, he just uses mine LOL Bill

I have AT&T,which works half of the time. I have searched this problem,asking every one I can about their phones. I have concluded that when my contract with AT&T runs out, I will go to Verizon.Good luck. 2

I to was an ATT customer for a couple of years and my service was OK up at the lake but now I have Verizion and it has worked really good even way out on the lake. Its really important for me to have service up there for my business and saftey reasons.I heard the local carrier up there Cell 2000 was aqquired by Verizion so I think the service will only improve.

Verizon worked well for me in Dec, I wasn't at Zipple but had good coverage where I was.

Fishing lady did you have to do something other then regulor Tracphone service to get your phone to work up there? The Trac phone I have works only in Baudette half mile out of town I don't have any service anyplace up there.

T-mobile worked once while clearing the snow off the top of the shanty. Got one bar and can't recall the provider.

Altell works fine in the fish house. It cuts out from time to time but works for the most part. At the lodge it's got full bars.

I have att and it was worthless. My cousin's sprint phone did the trick though.

Fsnrod; I use a Zip code form I. Falls and it work all over up there. When I actovated the phone and used my home zip I did not get good service up there, so changed the zip and that worked. I think the service form I. Falls is from Verizon, so that may be the reason or good service.

      Sorry I forgot to put their phone #.  218-385-3385. Ask for Dan or Bonnie.   Hope this helps.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
