I can tell you I have pulled up FM on my Treo when out fishing. It takes a while to load and sift through though as it loads like a normal web page.

I know there has been some talk of this recently among the admins. It seems that most people are able to read the boards, but different phones with different software aren't always able to post.

I'm not sure where the higher-ups stand on this, but I know it hasn't gone unnoticed.

I chuckle a little to think people are checking the site, even when they are out fishing or hunting. If I had a smart phone I would probably be doing it from the deer stand.

I would use the "contact us link" at the bottom of the page, you will get the info first hand!

If I had a web phone I would be looking at this site on it, that's for sure. Possibly in a store isle or checking for ideas for different tactics while fishing.

Works OK from my Blackberry. Its a lot of scrolling, but workable.

I like the idea of reading while fishing though laugh

Yeah, a WAP site would be fantastic and it would only fuel the addiction that much more. LOL. I think the side bar on the left makes it harder for mobile devices, and users, to browse on a smart phone/pda. Lot of scrolling to get to the meat of the page.

A while back I was having issues with my locator while I was out fishing but couldn't remember the button sequence to do a hard reset on the device. Pulled out the Blackberry and within a few minutes I had my answer while sitting in the middle of the lake. Pretty amazing at times what a person can do today.

I can tell you it was handy on opener this year being on Leech. We were able to get out Saturday morning without issue and I wanted an ice update on other parts of the lake. Found out some boats had been caught in some ice and that ice was still an issue in some areas.

Also good to check some reports when in for lunch/dinner/cold ones.....or planning the next days attack. Extra info always helps.....at least I like to believe it helps! shocked

I get it on my centro. Takes some time, but I can pull it up and post if I want. I've checked it while out fishing before. It's an addiction I tells ya!!!! Would be nice to see mobile. I'm sure it will come at some time as smart phones are just getting more and more popular.

*raising hand* I plead Guilty to the charges! Guilty I tell you!

was easier on a Blackjack before the HSOforum remodel, however, both before and after it's helped me with the waiting, both on the water and in the tree on quite a few occasions. wink

I for one would welcome most heartily a WAP version of FM.

I use it on an Ipod Touch as well, would be great to see it enabled for a mobile browser though.

I just got a blackberry and use " Opera mini".It let's you see the whole web page at once in micro size print so you can get past all the banners and such. Then you can enlarge the section you want to read.It is still a lot of scrolling but it is better than without it imho. It also let's me go to sites that are too big to download in the normal screen. (like hsolist).

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
