hey Fdog, been busy at work; hardly been home at all. Talked to Ryan a few weeks ago and he said you were having trouble getting fish in your spot. I'm waiting for the water temps to drop a little and the emergent vegetation to recede a bit then I'll be hammering the trout until the season shuts down at the end of next month. I'll give you a shout one of these weekends to get out....

DEADhead,

Good for you. Glad to see folks getting involved. I am a retired police capt. who headed up a "community policing" program where I worked in Ohio. It works! A while back after seeing several reports of thefts, I started a thread about how community policing could apply to our "fishing community". It ran for a while and I hope that was one of the sparks that got this going. In addition to the stickers, we will need a "stickey" in each region with reports of thefts & vandalism as well as whatever information is available on those responsible. Information like "possible a blue truck was involved" or "three snowmobiles one had a cleated track" is the kind of thing that will help members to come up with the leads law enforcement needs. Cellphones can be an excellent way to sick the sheriff on the bad guys. Let me know if I can be of help and I'll take a sticker too. smile.gif

sorry guys, I was on the road by 530am this morning for a meeting in Warroad; just got back an hour ago. I'll have to get some stickers over to you Fdog at another time.

I still haven't heard from some of you how you wanted to pick up your stickers. I never got a reply from the emails I sent out earlier in the month.... Please post on here where you want to pick up: Hawley, Detroit Lakes, my home, Fisherdog's office, etc...

Do you still have some stickers for the watch program available? I have a cabin on Big Elbow, but I live in Ill(3 hours south of Chicago in Peoria). I do not have anyone watching my place throughout the year and would like to at least have my information available for someone to report problems or issues. If the stickers are available, let me know the best way to contact someone.

Thank You

    • 750 this week only Im losing money on this but would rather have someone be able to use it than for it to just sit around. After this week I am going to winterize it and it will no longer be for sale.

    • How is she on the sit command?  That is the basis of everything.  She needs to learn to sit still and wait until the next command.  I don't even teach my dogs "stay" because it isn't necessary if they are solid on "sit".  Every dog has the ability to be steady, it is up to you to teach them.  A lab that isn't steady in the boat is not only annoying, it is potentially dangerous with loaded guns and the potential to capsize a boat in open water. 

      If she knows sit but just needs some reinforcement, it may just take a couple trips where you don't even bring the gun along and let others shoot while you handle the dog. 

      If she's real bad, I would recommend going back to the basics. It will be tougher with an older dog versus a puppy but is definitely worth it. Check out the retriever training DVDS by Bill Hillman. They are spendy but definitely worth it.

      Looking for advice on keeping the dog focused and quiet in the duck boat.  Was out today and we shot enough ducks to keep her busy, however my dog is such a hyper hypo that it's a  little annoying.  Either whining or jumping back and forth from the front and back of the boat.  Do I just need to establish the expectation and keep on her till she finally gets it or is this how some dogs are in the boat? This is her 4th year duck hunting and she has continued to improve each season.  Overall I am happy with her work, especially with the limited amount of hunting I do.  We were out today for 3 hours, shot 8 birds and she did great on the retrieving end and is pretty much focused on the skies, but if something is not constantly dropping from them I feel like I have a screaming baby on my hands.  It's not really that bad, just very annoying.   I would just like her to sit in her spot, stare at the skies and wait for my command.  Is this to much to ask?

      she's getting big

      She's up to 38 pounds at a few days short of 5 months and does not stop going 100 mph. She got exposed to a lot of feathers this weekend at duck camp. She retrieved dead ducks and geese in the yard after our hunts. The goose was a bit big so I chopped a wing off and worked with that after she picked it up and barely made it back a short distance to me.

      Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort Lake of the Woods, Northwest Angle 9/25/16

       

      Happy Fall!

       

      On the Minnesota side fishing has been great around Soldier’s and Mergan’s Point. Most points have been producing fish as well as bays due to shiners moving into the bays. Raps and spinners have been successful as well as 3/8 ounce jigs with the jig bite turning back on. Shiners, crawlers and fatheads have all been attracting the fish. The magic depth has been between 8 and 18 feet. The duck and goose opener has been successful with many resident birds still around we have not seen any signs of northern birds in the area. There have been many Woodducks and Mallards around.

       

      Over on the Ontario side the Walleye bite has been great and the Crappies are picking up. Anglers have been targeting fall spots and jigging in 18-28 feet of water. Emerald shiners are on the move to spawn so watch for them in channels and bays with creeks. The water temp is cooling down and is approximately at 62 degrees. Trolling for Muskies in 10-18 feet has also been good.

       

      The leaves are starting to change colors and there is definitely a chill in the air but, there is still plenty of time to get in on some wonderful fall fishing. The best part about fall fishing is some of the great wildlife you get to see out and about. Also, it is a good time to start thinking about your winter ice fishing trip, we would love to have you as our guest!

       

      Until next week, good luck fishing!

      First time up in Brainerd in 3 years. Went to big trout on Friday, thinking it would be a guarantee (which it usually is). Nope! Not even the rock bass were hitting! Only ended up with a couple pike and a couple largemouths. The inspector at the boat launch was showing me some pics of a couple lake trout this one guy had caught a few days earlier, a 34 and 36 incher! Saturday we were going to fish gull, but it was jam packed with people! Was there a tournament going on? Ended up at a secret little lake where my wife caught bass and pike one right after the other, while I couldn't get a bite to save my life! Was good to be back up there after a 3 year absence. Hopefully I'll find the time to get up there again.
