Dennis, on Mar 28, 2012 asked:

I'm looking to buy a pair of GMRS radios for use while fishing; any suggestions?

We have limited professional exposure with GMRS radios, as such I cannot provide you with advice on that front. On a related note, I'd seriously consider getting a GPS-enabled portable VHF radio, for instance the Standard Horizon HX-851. With GPS you can now have DSC functionality right in the palm of your hand and the radio also is water submersible.
