      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.

Skunk

Recommended Posts

My Brittany got sprayed Saturday morning. Cabin and dog reeked!!! Used a recipe I heard on KFAN Outdoors. A bottle of hydrogin paroxide, liquid dish soap and baking powder and a pair of rubber gloves. I had this in a kit and it sure came in handy. Worked like a charm. Only bad things can happen when you let a dog out in the dark.

I always have a bottle of "Nature's Miracle Skunk Odor Remover" with after going through that sevral times over the years. It costs about $9 a bottle at Petco. It also works on other odors dog get from rolling in dead things and so on that these critters always seem to find.

Do you use the products in that order seperately or do you apply all of them to the dog at the same time?

Or do you mix them together and then put them on the dog?

You mix it all together just before you put it on the dog.

How much dish soap and baking powder do you use?

This odor remover is made from simple household ingredients:

1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide

1/4 cup of baking soda

1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap.

Mix the three ingredients together and use immediately. The chemical reaction produced from these ingredients lasts only a limited time.

If you use this formula to remove skunk odor from your pet, be sure to rinse offhim off with water. Do not let the solution soak for more than a few minutes.

Couple more things about this recipe, don't store it once it's mixed, in a sealed container. It creates a gas that will expand and "explode" if left in a container with a lid. Could be nasty if put in a glass container and just plain messy if in a plastic one. The Peroxide is a bleaching agent so be careful what you put it on. Also, the solution is good only for a few hours at most so don't premix it thinking you'll have it handy for emergencies. I've used it, unfortunately, and found it to work great on most things. Leather boots aren't one of them.

To add... Try to keep it out of your dogs eyes. I put a few drops of olive oil in their eyes to help.

Newman got hit by a skunk tonight...I was in the house and could smell it right away...I IMMEDIATELY went to find him outside and sure enough as soon as i opened the basement slider I knew what I was in for...Holey skunk!!!!

I grabbed him immediately to keep him from running inside and wouldnt you know it my hand went right into the spray. DAAAAAAAAAMN

Unfortunately I have winterized my outdoors and moved my hoses and stuff into the basement. I had to rinse him the best I could with a few buckets of soapy water and carried him into the shower where I gave him 3 baths. He's pretty clean now, the only place I can smell any skunk is if I stick my nostrils right on his snout. The baking soda/hydrogen peroxide was my choice of deoderizers.

The only thing that is left smelling horrible now is my hands!!! Madge I soaked them! Still cant get the stink out!!

What a mess.

My dog was sprayed six different times by skunks. Four times in her first year of hunting. The recipe works!

I had my dogs get sprayed by a skunk and used some skunk away stuff, worked great. A couple of weeks later they rolled in dead rotten (in the water) raccoon. I tried the skunk away, nothing. I used a custom blend of dish soap, vinegar, and herbal essences. That worked, course they were unhappy they didn't reek any longer and smelled really fruity....

I had to use the recipe a couple weeks ago myself after the dog had a slight encounter with a skunk. She wasn't real bad, but you could definitely smell it on her. I had my sister call a vet to see if they had any of that over the counter skunk spray on hand, but instead the vet recommended the peroxide recipe as a much more effective way of removing the smell. It seemed to do the job!

      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!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      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.
    • Mark
      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.  
    • IceHawk
      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. 
    • mrpike1973
      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
