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.

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.

I have never had a problem with Sprint anywhere on LOW. Works great.

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 recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
