Wireless broadband connectivty on the ice

Recommended Posts

Big_Cahuna

Ocassionally work requires me to get connected to the Internet even on days off. Knowing I was going to be on the ice when this occurred I bought a aT&T wireless broadband card. Anyone else have one? I'm trying to find out how good the coverage is. I'll fish in the Brainerd area, Mille Lacs, Upper Red and around Bemidji. If anyone has any info I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

I have the sprint broadband and it works better than my cell phone for signal. I dont have a problem in that area.

Does your sprint card work on the whole lake? I tried last year, and didn't get very good coverage on the north east end.

Thanks.

I used to have a sprint card but it was only high speed when I was in major areas. Yes I got connected most places but at dial up speed which meant 5 min downloading a simple pdf file. No Thanks! Not worth the frustration.

I know at URL that at&t phones dont work, so the internet probably wont either. I loose coverage right around Black Duck!

I have the mobile broadband card from Qwest (same as Sprint) It sucks when it's picking up dial up but it is better than nothing. I will be testing on URL this weekend, we'll see how she works.

I use my UNICEL phone at home and it is much better than normal dial up. I used to use Wild Blue but became to expensive to repair. I know UNICEL reception is real good on Red. Also the cost is only 15 mo for UNICEL (VERIZON) home area and 35 for nationwhide. I have used a card before with the same success.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
