      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.

Heated Water Bowls ??????

Recommended Posts

mudman

I have gone through 2 $40 electricly heated water bowls in 2 weeks. The boy just won't stop chewing on them. He has cow hoofs, pig ears and plenty of toys to chew on. He just likes destroying his food dishes and I haven't been able to stop him for a month now.

Is there a metal heated dish out there that a guy can buy?

I was at gander and about 4 different petshop and Nada, just the plastic ones.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks

check out the Canine Canteen available at Lion Country Supply and other places. I've had one for probably 8 years and will be getting another as the smaller plastic one I tried to get away with in kennel #2 this year was all froze up this morning already...

Where is this lion country and supply you speak of?

can I order it online?

Has anyone ever heard of a heater core? I guess it looks like a power stick (one of them things that accepts 5 different 3 pronged outlets) that you just put in the water and it keeps it from freezing?

Mudman,

I have a little female lab that would probably take care of a plastic water dish in about 2 hours. I bought a stainless steel bowl with the metal wire-wrapped cord at Mill's Fleet. It was $32.00 and it seems very well built. That is one of the cheapest prices that I have seen for stainless. I checked it this morning and it was full of water and not one speck of ice. Not too bad for -2 actual temp. Too cold for my dog outside, but not for her water dish.

I gave up on using electric heaters for my dogs. One shorted out for no apparent reason. Glad it was on a GFCI. Now, when I feed my dogs twice a day, I bait there water and they drink it all. Just soak a little dry kibble in some warm water and they should drink it. I think my dogs stay more hydrated in the winter than in the summer when they have ready access to water. Some people use canned salmon or canned cat food to flavor their dogs water.

Go stainless/metal.

Buy quality once, have it for a lifetime.

      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.
