      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.

The dog is the is the one on the right in the picture. (its the only pic I have of the dog) If you see the dog please let me know because I would like to get it back with its owner.

The owners kid is 6 years old and is taking it pretty bad that his dog is gone. The dogs name is Ceasar and he is about 9 months old, the dog is mix of setter and beagle. A kennel from the area offered the boy a new puppy but they would like there dog back. I cant believe how low some people will go.

Any chance the dog is chipped or has a tatoo?

Not 100% sure but the dog may have a I.D. tattoo under its ear.

The dog was found in Florida. The little guy made it a long way. The vet found the tattoo on the ear. (not sure what it even is) the dog will be back home in a few days.

Thats amazing! The odds were very much against the, great to hear the happy ending.

It was some sort of ID tattoo or how did the vet know this was a stolen dog or contact the owners? I know you said you're not sure what it is, but I'd be curious if anyone else knew, because it obviously works.

Hey! Have they gathered the firing squad yet for the thief? Or the flogging team? How about the waterboarding gang?

Sign me up for all three.

Oh....the buried- in -the -sand near the ant hill mob too!!

For those who are going to tattoo their dog.

The preferred location is on the inner leg where it meets the belly. It has been proven that on rare occassions the ear or portions of the ear were removed to take away the tattoos ability to I.D. the animal. Plus the tattoo is readily seen by anyone examining the dog.

Many people use their social security number or D.L. number... you can be easily tracked down by that.

Glad the pup was found! I'm sure the owners are thrilled to know he's coming home.

Good Luck!

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but after reading this, I'm concerned. What is the best way to "tag" your dog? Implants? Tatoo?

Both! and neither...

What I mean by that is this... having it tattoo'd and having it chipped combined gives you the best chance of seeing your dog again. Especially if it gets 'lost'. But having either/or of the techniques done means little to a thief. They will do what is needed to not make the animal "known" to be stolen...

The tattoos are readily visable and if lost in an outstate area where no chip scanner is available, the tattoo helps with positive ID... the chips are easily scanned and have idependent ID #s, so if a stray is brought in, most metro areas require the stray dog to be scanned, then the number is read, call up the company, they view their data base and walla! The dog finds it way back to you!

To these methods I also employ a "REWARD" note on my collars. My dogs wear a coated nylon collar when hunting (both reg. collar and e-collar) and I write with a permanant marker "REWARD" and my phone number on the inside of the collar. I don't want people to know the dogs name or my address. Reasons are simple... If they know the dogs name they already cleared a huge hurdle in gaining the dogs trust and they may end up keeping it to be their new best hunting dog. Also if I put my address on there, it gives them the ability to scan my residence to see if other dogs would fit the bill... I know it may be a little "Black Helicoptor-ish", but I prefer to keep it simple. Play off their desire to get a reward and a phone number... that's it. Along with chips I feel I have a good chance of seeing them come home.

I used to tattoo, but haven't since running trials. We used to have a tattoo'er come in once a year and do your dog for I think $15... but I have no idea who does them now... they are nice to have done though if you find someone who will do one for you.

Good Luck!

Ken

If anyone knows the details of how the dog was found and identified; how connection made with owners in MN etc. it would be nice to hear about it. Nice to know the system works now and then.

And what is this stuff with you guys.....no volunteers for the flogging squad even?

I'll be right there for the flogging, it makes me sick to think of that happening. Glad to here it may have a happy ending. Hopefully, that would never happen to my setter, she kicks me a couple times a night to let me know she's there. I know how it is, I'd let her drive the truck, but her feet don't reach the pedals.

What a great story ending!

I dont have the whole story because I haven't been able to contact the owner except through voice mail. But here is how the dog was found. Who ever stole the dog tried to remove the I.D. on the dogs ear, the dog got a bad infection and the person brought the dog the vet. When the vet saw the infection and the I.D. he figured out that the dog was probabaly stolen.

Its going to be interesting to hear how the dog ended up in Florida and if the person that stole him got caught.

I will keep you guys updated.

(my wife is a tattoo artist so maybe she can look into doing I.D.'s for dogs)

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      Lot of ice on the shore, only place to fish as of Thursday is two harbors breakwall
    • Wanderer
      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!  
    • fowldreams
      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
