Should I bring my TV?

10 posts in this topic

I have a new 14ft shack with a TV/pop-up antennae and was wondering if I'm going to get any reception on the other side of Pine Island. Thanks for any responses...

Of course I'm going to be staring at my flasher all day, but at night it might be cool to watch a little tube.

This is a no brainer. I look forward to getting up there just so I dont have to see, listen, or even think about that TV set. Its like going 10 miles into the Boundry Waters and packing a CD player with you to listen to. Get my point. You can catch up on all the news and sports scores when you get back. For gods sakes spend all you energy jigging, BS'ing , drinking good whiskey, and taking fish off you hook not channel surfing. Enough said!

Just my thoughts grin.gif Enjoy it up there (LOW) some people may never get there!!!!

That is correct. I got you, the horse was dead after the first swing so I didn't have to keep beating it. Ha Ha Have a good X-mas Bturk and say high to Glen at the Riverbend from the Kuznia boys. Fishing has been great up there my dad just came back with great reports

Good luck and save a few for me!! grin.gif

If you plan on staying out on the lake at night a TV might not be a bad idea as channel surfing might be your only action.Not sure on the reception

Like I said, I'll be watching my flasher all day and probably having a few adult beverages here and there too. But I've been to LOW enough to know once it's dark, it's over (usually) until morning. People will tune in to check the news/weather etc. and that's what I wanted to know about. I don't understand French so maybe I'll just bring a couple DVDs. Thanks guys

If you have a crank up RV antenna you will get great reception. Most of the channels are either out of Duluth or Warroad. I have that style antenna and was just up there from 12/10-12/18 and stayed in my house and after dark it sure was nice to be able to watch the weather. The channels you will get will all be in the 50's, 60's, and higher. Good Luck and enjoy.

Well, it sounds like your going to be by yourself so why not pack the 12 volt VCR and a load of skin-flicks! Great way to pass the time if the fish aint' bitin'! You'll stay warm too!
