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

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
