      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.

Said goodbye to my baby this morning

Recommended Posts

rockman

The day we all hope will never come, came today, for me. I had to put down my 13.5 yr.old GSP female named Heidi this morning. Her rapidly deteriorating health left me no choice. It was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. My last words to her were, "Say Hi, to Major and Roscoe." and then I kissed her goodbye. I lost the other two dogs, two years ago. It never gets easier, but my other two 'boys'-Skyler(GSP) & Bailey(ESS), will fill the void. I miss you, baby. RIP Heidi. December 27, 1999 - June 29,2013.

sorry for your loss. it's something that we all know we will have to do, one of the hardest things we'll ever do, but it is something we all owe our pets. when life becomes a challenge for them, we owe it to them to make the decision. remember the good times, and know you did right by her and she is better off.

Brought a tear to my eye as my Lobo will be 5 on the 4th of july. Hopefully we get 13 yrs out of him, He lays at my feet or at least within an eyeshot. On my foot now. No words can ever ease the pain, know all of us are saying an extra prayer tonight.

I remember every one of my friends; they are still with me, some of them fifty years later. And let me share this: My beautiful Annie, who we lost last fall to cancer,had a habit when riding in the passenger seat of my truck, of reaching over with a paw and pulling my hand over to her..just some affection. She is the only dog that has done that.

Two days ago Abby, six months of age, was sitting in the passenger seat and out of the blue she reaches over with a paw and takes my hand. I about fell out of the truck-it was Annie and I said aloud "Annie! I will not foreget you." Sorta spooky isn't it. I just KNOW they are out there somewhere, waiting.

Go ahead, call me a goofy old man. What the hell, it makes ME feel good.

I know how you feel tonight. But she will be with you.

Thank you all for your condolences, and thoughts. Bailey is 11 weeks old, and he is keeping Skyler, who 1.5 yrs. old, and the rest of the family, pretty busy. Having a puppy around certainly helps us get through this. Again, thank you all. It is greatly appreciated.

Sorry for your loss, rockman. As dog owners, we all must face the loss of our most loyal companions one day frown I have been through a couple of good dogs in my life, it sucks for quite a while after... I have a feeling the puppy will help ease your families pain somewhat.

      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.
    • Mark
      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.  
    • IceHawk
      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. 
    • mrpike1973
      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.
