Isn't technology great. I haven't tried it with my phone but I do have a broadband card from verizon for my laptop. So anywhere I have signal with my phone I can go online with my laptop. Nothing like goin down the road and surfin the net. And no I do not do it while I am driving.

Do you need to pay for a special service with your Verizon broadband card or does it just use regular minutes off your phone plan?

I have the verizon card too and I love it! Each company has them now. The verizon is unlimited broadband a month for $50 or so. It has its own plan for the card, kinda like a totally seperate cell phone. The good news is most people pay $50 for Highspeed internet at home, but if you have a laptop why not pay the same $50 and take it anywhere you want all the time.

Actually there is a way to hook up your phone to your laptop and can use it the same way the card works. Except it only uses minutes, no extra fee. It's called tethering and the phone companies do not like it blush.gif

Try a google search on mobile phone tethering. wink.gif

      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!
