      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.

Also looking for a male

Recommended Posts

Bryce

Now that everyone's undies are good and bunched up and this is getting some looks, thought I'd also look for male. I have a young chocolate that we will start breeding in 3 years or so if all goes well with her training and health checks. Candidate must be chocolate or strongly chocolate factored black, hips and eyes must be certified (prefer hips to be excellent), dog must have attained either QAA or MH title(or have intentions of attempting this feat since this dog may also be a pup). There may be only a few people on this site that a have a dog or know someone that has a dog of this quality but looks like this is the time to post it up. Like I say, this is still several years in the future but if you can match the list above it will then be time to look at pedigrees and see if we can pair up a good breeding. Location is not a factor. Fully understand that female may have to travel by air to breed.

Bryce... give me a call. I may have something for you, but I think we might have discussed this b-4.

Good Luck!

The Captains Kennels up near Virginia has a male that might meet your requirements, by the name of what else, Captain. We got a chocolate female pup, sired by him,from them last spring and are very happy with her. Just do a search for The Captains Kennels.

Hope this helps. Good luck in your search.

Just seeing what's out there Labs. You know I'll probably look at a couple dozen dogs before I make a final decision. Not expecting to find much here other than the big kennel studs that I already know about.

Larry, what are your intentions with the pup? Gonna play the dog games with her or a hunting pet? Keep us informed how she's doing if you go the games route. Always nice to know what these studs are throwing out for talent.

No bird hunting, I gave that up a few years ago, and also no games. We just decided that with this pup we would get a good quality bred puppy. The last pup we got from a backyard breeder and we learned that it is pay now or pay later. We went through surgery for OCD and some other expenses. This gal is just a pet and companion but came with all the guarantees. With her good background and the fine work of the breeder hopefully we will not have the same type of problems.

But I do know that her sire has thrown some pups that have been very sucessful in trials. Thanks for asking.

I have been sitting here taking in all these comments about"backyard breeders" and I'm at the point where I need to say something, good or bad here it is.

I believe the the term "backyard breeder" is a misnomer. The responsibility of what you, the buyer, ends up with lies entirely on your shoulders. Do some research, look at what both the stud & bitch have for health certificates. If both have ofa cert. hips and the eyes have the cerfs. then look at the pedigree. If the next 1-2 generations are good then there is NO difference where you buy the puppy from. If you buy a puppy from Mary Howley at candlewood kennels or from me this summer the chance is there, believe it or not that you might end up with a puppy that has bad hips or his eyes might have folds in them.

In the end you as a buyer are in control of what you can end up with. Buying a puppy is a crap shoot no matter how you look at it. I bought 4 puppies this summer, 2 sets of brothers from 2 different litters. In the end 1 puppy from each litter went back to the seller, one with folds and the other with a screwed up back leg. The pedigrees 4 generations back were clean but the chance is always there that something like this can happen.

In the end making sure that you have guarantees from the breeder is very important.

      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!!

      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.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
