The Garmin VHF 100 Radio leaves the lines of communication open for long trips out at sea.
Communicate with Confidence
With up to 25 watts of transmit power at your fingertips, you'll be able to stay in touch anywhere on the water. So no matter where you are or where you're heading, you'll always have a line of communication open to make sure every voyage is a safer voyage.
The Garmin VHF 100 provides full Class D Digital Selective Calling (DSC) capability via NMEA 0183 interface. Should trouble arise, DSC provides distress calls with the push of a button. And if your boat is already interfaced with a compatible GPS chartplotter, you'll get mayday signaling and a digital broadcast of your boat's position. The VHF 100 also features NOAA weather alerts and Position Tracking, which allows a mariner to locate and keep tabs on up to three other boats in the area.
The VHF 100 has a simple user interface that's easy to read while on the go so you'll always have the right information at the right time. In addition to dedicated buttons and knobs for ease of use, the VHF 100 features three soft keys linked to onscreen menus that allow boaters to see and select the information they want. The VHF 100 also offers premium sound quality so every message is loud and clear. And to make sure the data stands out, the information is available on a 3.2-inch display - the largest screen available in its class.
The VHF 100 is built to brave the elements. And to simplify the installation process, it can also be mounted in a variety of configurations. With removable front caps, the VHF 100 can be easily added in cockpit consoles or cabin bulkheads. It's the only front flush-mounting capable marine radio available on the market today, which makes the VHF 100 as flexible as it is functional. It's made to last with rugged design that's also submersible (IPX7 standards), so you'll get a full-featured marine receiver that's ready to go in a compact fixed-mount design.

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.Read More
We've all felt the frustration of weeding through a school of dinks to catch a "keeper." Often the small fish outnumber the bigger ones and they are typically more aggressive. Sometimes there's no choice but to deal with it, as is often the case with open water fishing. However a frozen lake involves a vertical presentation and a stable platform, it's a perfect situation to pick and choose which fish you want. Once you locate a school and get set up it's time to start sizing them up with a FishSens SondeCAM underwater fishing camera. It can be mind-blowing just how big some of these schools of fish are and also how outnumbered fish of a desirable size can be.Read More
It’s no secret that anglers have been the means by which invasive species and non-native fish have spread to new water bodies in the past. Fishermen have even been known to transport some of their favorite fish to new areas on purpose so that they can catch them a little closer to home. And the results of those actions have not always been ideal. In Ontario, Canada, fishermen have taken non-native bass and stocked them into what were historically lakes dominated by brook and cutthroat trout. The actions have impacted ecosystems, but scientists have been unable to broadly study the effects because they didn’t have enough data. But that is no longer the case for some Ontario lakes, as a study from biologists at the University of Toronto shows.Read More
