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

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT

      Finally got a bird down.  A small jake, but a bird none the less.
