      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.

Labradoodles

Has anybody hunted over a labradoodle? I need a dog, but the significant other is allergic to them...so I'm making an effort to compromise as much as I can. This is the only breed that will have a chance to get in the house occasionally. Thanks

I would bet they'd be ok being that poodles were orginally bred to be hunters. Mix that with a lab and they might be good. Although i'm not in favor of the breed. I see breeders selling these "mutts" for $5-600. Can't see myself spending that much on a mix breed. But, whatever works i guess.

If she is truly,medically, certified to be allergic to dogs then she will be allergic to ANY dog. Please don't buy one....of any breed.You'll be doing some poor little puppy a real favor and sending him/her on to a good home.

Perhaps you might want to buy a nice tiger.

Most animal allergies aren't to the animals themselves but to the dander(dead skin, dust mites, dust, etc.) in the animal's fur. If the dog is bathed thoroughly a couple times a week, animal dander allergies should be in check. I'm no allergist and I don't know the extent of the animal allergy that each person has. I do have seasonal allergies and some food allergies and I've found the best remedy is to "tough it out" til your body adjusts to the allergen. I used to get shots(which are doses of allergen, to get your body used to it) and take Rx and OTC meds. The past two years I've done nothing and this year my allergies were almost non-existant. I have a friend who is allergic to cats and I have a cat. He says that even though his eyes itch and he gets sneezy when he comes over, it's not as bad as a few years ago. I let him suffer because I'm not even going to try and give my cat a bath wink.gif

Hey Kingr,

The Wirehair Pointing Griffon's is another option for you, plus they are a true hunting breed & not a mutt. There is a breeder in your area his name is Mark Drexler & he lives in Duluth. He also goes by Double Griff here at FM. He was possibly going to have some pups on the ground in Nov. a repeat breeding from last year which was the litter I got my pup from.

My best suggestion would be to call him up & take the better half over to meet the dogs & see if she has a reaction to them before comitting to a pup. The Griffon's have hair not fur & are non-shedding dogs. My buddy is allergic to dogs also & he never has reactions around the Griffon. So this might be a better fit for you if your looking for a hunter.

Marks number is 218-310-7156 give him a call.

Good Luck with your search for a pup.

Chris

Chris,

Just wondering if you have any first hand experience about the allergy thing with the wirehairs? I have heard this also but not many people seem to talk much about the wirehairs being better for allergy sufferers. I am thinking hard about a griff also. If they would be better for my allergies that would seal the deal.

By the way, how is your pup doing? Did you take him out hunting yet this year?

Thanks,

Dave

What a dumba$$ I am! I just realized that you wrote in your post about your buddy who is allergic. I guess that answers my question.

Sorry,

Dumba$$ Dave

Now I don't know if there is any kind of scientific evidence to support this but I have seen it first hand and was told by my vet, that sometimes two dogs will offset the others dander and sometimes make those that would normally be allergic, have no reaction at all. My wife never reacted to my dads dog until his other one died. now I own my dads dogs sister, and my wife has never had a reaction to her, (we have two dogs). Like I said I don't know if it is coincidence, but my vet did verify that he has also heard of this....

Thats wierd! I've never heard of such a thing. But then again, there's a lot of things that I don't know.

BigDave,

The pup "Rudy" is doing great. He is now 18 mo. old. We went out yesterday & downed 1 rooster. Missed plenty of them also! shocked.gif He is just starting to figuring out the wild birds they are moving alot now that they have been pressured. But he is catching on to tracking them when they are on the run. All in all we had about 12 points yesterday with 85% of them being hens. Just couldn't shoot the roosters that did get up due to trucks coming down the road or other hunters crowding me mad.gif

Later,

Chris

Sounds like Rudy is doing great! What area do you normally hunt in? Maybe I could tag along sometime and watch Rudy do his thing and see if he affects my allergies if you wouldn't mind?

Give me an e-mail if you would like to do that.

Thanks

Dave

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .
    • Slobslayer99
      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush. 
    • IceHawk
      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,
