Marine band radios

5 posts in this topic

I have a marine band radio on my boat that I use at other areas I fish, I have not used it much when I'm at Cass Lake. Now it is not working and I'm thinking about replaceing it. Do many people use marine band at Cass or do they use C.B.radios or nothing? Just wondering what to do. Counting the days till June when we go back to Cass

I have one in my boat due to Tourny requirements... However if I need it I would most likely only use it for emergencies... Nice security blanket to have while on the water... Nowadays cell phones tend to be WAY easier to use...

Hey Rick,

How is the family doing? Will you be here at base camp again this year?

There was a large group of seasonal guys that would chat back and forth about ten years ago on marine band radios but the number of them has been cut back big time in the past seven years or so. A few times each summer when large groups stay on Cass you will notice a lot of chatter between their boats and that is about it now. Hope this helps answer your question.

Hi Brian, the family is doing great. We will be at Break on the Lake again this June. I will have my "Newer" boat ready by then. Thanks to all for the info about the radio. Rick

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
