      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

gundoghousedoor and you know how to do the rest to get to their site. Not steel but guaranteed chew proof. Have had a pair of these for close to ten years now and no problems.

K-9 Kondo sells a all steel door. Benn using them for over 10 years and they have been fantastic. I use the barrel house in conjunction to their door, but you can order the door seperate. I like how you can keep them open in the summertime.

Good Luck!

Used heavy aluminum sheet (simular to cookie sheet only a little heaver) just a little larger than the dog door opening, bent opening edge a couple inches and at a 45 degree and for hinges I used spring screen door hinges that are the adjustable tension type. Put a small block of wood to hold door open a little until the dogs get used to going in and out then remove the wood block. Dogs open and close these doors easily and doors are now 6 or 7 years old with no chew problems.

Labs-

I have a K9 Kondo and love it, but my 5 month old lab wont go in it if the door is down. I have put treats in the far back of the barrel and also put peanut butter on the screw off caps to get her to go in. She will go in then, but will always keep a leg outside so the door doesn't close all of the way. The other night, I put her in the kennel for the night with the door down and hoped she would eventually just go inside, but at 2 AM I decided to sneak a peek at her and she was laying on the cement outside of the house. She sleeps in the K9 Kondo just fine with the door open. I'm just a little worried with the colder temps coming soon. I also put hay inside for her.

Any tricks to get her used to going in and out with the door down?

I have the same problem with a 2 year old dog that I have right now. She will go in when I command 'kennel' (sometimes needs a little push to get her going) and will come back out no problem, she will go in when the door is open... I figure when she gets cold enough she will go in. I just make her go in at least once a day in front of me so I know she understands she can go in there. My older dogs go in and out all day long since they were little pups and never showed any hesitancy towards the door.

If it continues to get cold and she is not using it, I will 'kennel' her in there at night and use the rod to pin the door shut so she sleeps in there... that should be all she needs to get her over the top.

Good Luck!

Ken

Tink,

Could you post some pictures of this. I'm betting it's just as good and under $100. Thanks

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
