Game Fair...The "State Fair" for dogs.

5 posts in this topic

Who's getting excited? I went last year for the first time in about 10 years, and I had a really good time. It was fun to see all the different dogs and puppies, and most impressive to me was Tom Dokken's seminar with his pooch, Rookie. Is there a list of events and times for any of these seminars? I suppose I could call somewhere. I'm bringing my little cousin with this year. He's getting really into bird hunting and has his mind set on a German Wirehaired Pointer in the next year or two. Should be fun!

The "Outdoor News" usually has a listing of the seminars and their times. Game Fair also has a web site that you can check out.

Though I might run my dogs in it again, I think the pointing dog competition is pretty hokey. My dogs thought I was CRAZY chasing them around behind a 6-8'lead. I think they should compete without a lead, either that or a MUCH longer one.

I hear you...didn't care much for that competition as well, from what I saw of it. I like it more or less because of all the different dog breeds to see and the few deals you can find there. Other than that, it just gets me pumped for bird hunting season. Now the Pheasant Fest in St Paul this coming January...that's something that should be really fun to go to.

      Nailed the Crappies last night in 2-3 feet of water!!   They were all 9-10" and skinny runts for the length.   All were catch n release and topped off with a 18 64/65th " bass at dark!!  it was as close as 19" you could go with out being 19" LOL   What a rush on 4 pound test

      Sorry I forgot to put their phone #.  218-385-3385. Ask for Dan or Bonnie.   Hope this helps.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.
