      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.

Cut on back

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

My 4 month old yellow lab has an injury on his back. It looks like he got caught on something like a fence. His skin is peeled back a little bit and some pink skin is showing.

Is this a big deal? How will I know if it is a big deal?

This happened a couple of days ago. When should he see a vet about it?

Thanks

I learned the hard way that if there is a question in your mind about bringing your dog to the vet...you should go.

If this gets infected on the weekend you will end up paying WAY more at the Vet ER than at your normal vet. Your dog could be in pain too. If this is more than a normal cut or scrape obtained hunting or playing I suggest going and getting checked out today.

Definitely get your pup to the vet as soon as possible. Their fees really aren't that bad for the peace of mind you get.

Your pup will likely be just fine but why chance a problem cropping up with one of your new best buddies.

If you want a definite answer and peace of mind you should probably go to the vet. My GWP has gotten caught on a fence a couple of times and tore the skin. I talked to my vet and his advise was to keep it clean with peroxide and if it looks like it is getting infected, then bring her in. It heeled up fine without a trip to the vet, but she does have a nice scar. Just my experience for you to consider.

Thanks.

I think I will have our groomer look at it. She lives down the street and get her opinion and go to the vet if she thinks we should.

Thanks

      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.

      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.

      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...

      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!!!
