Somebody hit my Springer's light switch

5 posts in this topic

Some of you know I've been concerned about my 14 week old Springers lack of interest in retrieving. Didn't seem that interested.

I took him out to SandCreek's training session tonight - and they pitched him a clip wing - immediately he went in a crouch, started barking for a while at it - then picked it up and brought it back to me. I tossed it a couple more times - and man, was HE REVVED UP!

After that he was flying around in the field - messing with the other Springers as they came out to train - and generally acting like a Springer is supposed to act.

Amazing - it's like someone flipped a switch in him. Like one of the guys there said "He found out his purpose in life."

Very cool...

He's pretty young yet, be patient!!! Getting him used to your family and routine and some obedience work is all that’s needed at that young age. Patience.

10-4. It was just nice to see him get fired up.

He's in puppy kindergarten - wrestles with the other dog in our house - and gets lots of socialization. His obedience training is on track.

I"m Just happy he knows his purpose in life.

I know most of the guys that train down at Sand Creek and they know their stuff. You will learn a lot if you keep going and doing some training a couple times a month.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
