      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Crane Lake-Best Cell Phone Service provider?

Recommended Posts

Stizo

Just wondering what Cell Phone Service provider (if any) is best for the Crane Lake / Sandpoint Lake area.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Stizo

Verizon does NOT work in Crane Lake . I believe" Cellular One " and it's affiliates own the tower. The service they have in Crane only is from the dump area to the narrows going into Sandpoint Lake so make your calls while in town .If you have Verizon call and complain so they will eventually tie into the system up there.I believe most of the other major providers do work.

I have Cingular/AT&T and it works in town and parts of Crane. It doesn't work at our cabin on the north end...we have to boat across the lake near the two little islands to pick up a signal.

I have Verizon and a cellular one phone and the cellone works on Crane but I have to stand at the end of my dock in East Bay to get reception. Now the Verizon does not work past Orr unless I am at my shack by Myrtle lake, there the Verizon works better than the cell one(strange).

It's a cell one tower. I heard unless you have cell one, cingular or sprint you are out of luck. There's talk of another tower going up in buyck. Not sure of those particulars....

Cell One, T-Mobile, Cingular all work in the town of Crane Lake and on the lake. Make your calls before going into the Narrows to SandPoint..

echotrail

Verizon has a tower about 5 miles South of Orr on a high ridge but they are hit and miss after 8 to 10 miles outside of that point. I can get good signals on 2 or 3 high ridges in different areas off the Echotrail. I also get a full signal at the intersetion of Hwy 53 and the Ash River Trail. At the end of the Ash River Trail it's good some days and nothing on others, but here again I go to the top of a ridge. Only one time did I get a good signal out on Kab near Wolf Island, but I must have been under a UFO because it's never worked again on the lake.

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
