First of all, this is for VA anglers who can't go to Perryville, MD.

As of now I can fish on Feb 11 (Sat)

Target Species:
WP, LM and possible Striper (Chesapeake Strand)

I will give you a crank bait that works when trolling for WP, LM and Striper.

If you know how to fish dock, brush, and docks, bring your best lures.

My cell: 703-282-3816

The address of the house next to the gate is:
438 Overton Dr, Mineral, VA 23117

I will be there between 9:30-10:30am to open the gate. Let me know when you are coming.

Thanks,
Joe

Cancelled.

I canít make to Lake Anna. I just found that I have to be within 30 minutes away from the computer access on Saturday for work. One of the data centers is shutting down for an unscheduled maintenance. I am an on-call person.

Sorry about that.

I feel your pain Joe. I'm in the IT field as well and we are always on call in one form or another.

The Occoquan River should be just withing your range. You know if you stay home your phone will never ring but as soon as you leave for somewhere it rings like clockwork.

You should get a WiFi card and bring a laptop with you. That way you can paddle back to your car, Login and fix the issue without getting out of your wetsuit. Or even better bring the laptop on the kayak and post instant fishing reports to this site. :p

Feel your pain... I carry a Verizon 4G card and just VPN back in if I can't avoid it. Verizon has GREAT coverage so I've never had an issue.

I'm not lucky enough to get access to a Broadband card due to budget cuts but any major cell phone service provider has 3G and 4G USB broadband adaptors for laptops. The usage fees are kind of steep though seeing its catered towards businesses. Does your company provide you with a cell phone? if so check into the provider and see what they offer in Wireless broadband adaptors for laptops. Then sneak a Purchase Order on your bosses desk for one and see how it flies. Don't mention the fishing part though :D

Here is an example of what Sprint offers.

Bummer joe.. The weather report was looking a little scary anyways 70% snow and high winds with temps topping out in the 30's..

I wish sundays weather report looked better... I would consider hitting the Occuqaun again.

+1 We use Verizon. Real good coverage in this entire area. I've used it and it works. Definitely cool to be out doing something rather than sitting by the phone. I've not taken a laptop on the kayak but sure have taken it on the boat!

And Mike, LOL you are so right. Sit at home while on call and never a call. Head out the door and ring, ring...!
