Actually my golden retriever, disaster struck the other night, a #7 taildancer one set of hooks in the chest, the other in the lips, thanks to the help of a couple of others at the ramp 11:30 at night boat ramp surgery was performed, all but one hook removed, trip to the vet the next day for the other. lesson learned keep all lures and hooks away. especially at night because thats when things will go wrong. Thanks to the guys who helped me out.

We nearly had a similar incident a few weeks ago. I went with a buddy to canoe down the St. Croix up in the St. Croix State park area. We were paddling and fishing and my buddy had his 7 month old retriever in the front of the canoe with him. She sat still for probably 5 hours and 59 minutes out of the 6 hour trip.

As we paddled back up stream to unhook my rapala from a log my firend put his rod off to the side and let his lure hang over the side of the canoe. It was proably about a foot above the water and 2 feet over the edge of the canoe so we thought it would be well out of reach of the dog. But she saw the pretty orange dangly thing and just had to have it so she dove off the side of the canoe to grab it. It ended up hitting her in the chest,luckily it only got tangled in her fur. But she freaked out when she realized there was a pretty good current in the spot we were in and she had to swim hard to get back to the canoe. But we got her pulled back in and got the trebble hook out of her fur and she was fine the rest of the trip.

I guess she needs a little more training yet.

I talked with my Dad and father-in law about their experience at the dock late one night with whom I now believe to be you and your companion. My Dad was very impressed with the dogs patience while he removed hooks. Glad the dog is doing well and I'll pass it on to both of them.

      5/29/17 Fishing report from Flag Island Resort NW Angle, Lake of the Woods   Happy Memorial Day!   The past week has brought some variation in weather including sunshine, wind and rain. Overall fishing has been good.  The bug hatches have started with the fish flies having some impact on the fishing but, anglers are still consistently getting limits.   On the Minnesota side, the walleye, sauger, pike and perch bite continues. The magic depths have been between 7-13 feet in the mud and 16-26 feet on rocks. The Flag Island Flats are starting to heat up. Other hot locations include points and near shore reefs. Just the same as last week all tactics have had their day. Jigging, raps and spinners have all been producing once you find what is working. The water temp is around 58 degrees.   Over in Ontario anglers are still catching a nice mixed bag of walleye, sauger, crappie, perch, pike and smallmouth bass. The crappies are moving shallower getting ready to spawn. Some depths according to their species are as follows; Smallmouth bass 2-8 feet, Walleyes 20-24 feet and Sauger 26-30 feet. Points, reefs, humps, areas with current, rock piles and inside turns have all worked when looking for locations. A jig or spinner with a minnow or crawler has worked best. The hot colors have been gold, pink and orange.   Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides, Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.
