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.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
