Dog Training Location

1 post in this topic

I know this is very prematurely, but I have to ask as it is bugging me like no tomorrow…I have an 18 week old black lab pup right now that I have been waterfowl training with her since I got her, in which I was able to get some very brief water work in with her, but now with freeze up, those sessions are of course put on hold. Both, myself and her, have been doing very well with training, being it is a 1st for both of us. I have been following the Bill Wolters curriculum, I may add. But what I was wondering is…does someone have any private land with a water hole or slough that I could use this spring / summer to continue my training sessions or have any recommendations? I can’t use public wildlife land during Apr 1st through the end of July, I believe, due to disturbing of hatchings. Or am I reading the rules incorrectly? But if you have a “dead” pond near the St. Cloud area, that you wouldn’t mind me using that would be appreciated. Or if you could steer me in the right direction of who I could talk to or a club/oranization or whatnot that supports this please let me know…You can email me at:

      Fished ALL day with Mike. Started out good with a couple doubles on pike but slowed way down. Ended up with three walleyes, eight pike and about 30 bass. Couldn't mark many today whereas on Saturday I marked lots of fish. All on soft plastics. Today's video link Mike can catch em without crawlers video

      Fished about 3 hours this afternoon. Had 7 bites and missed them all. Tried bigger hooks on the jig and hooked minnows through the mouth out the back of the head.  Good solid strikes too but no luck. I'll try lindys and some lighter jigs tomorrow to see if that helps

      My wife and I fished Friday and Saturday.  Friday we got out around noon, fished shallow rocks (15 to 22ft), mid-depth reef (15 to 28ft), and shallow sand flats (8 to 20ft).  Bite was slow to non-existent, wind was strong and fierce at 18 to 24mph.  Boat control was tough and we ended the day about 4pm.  Told my wife the sacrifice was not worth the excitement.   Saturday was a different story.  Calm with some sun.  Got out by 10am and started out fishing shore rocks (15 to 28ft) and picked up a couple.  Around noon moved to deeper reefs and bang we found fish, nice ones too.  We were trolling very slowly, i.e. 0.1 to 0.3 mph until we marked and caught fish.  Then we'd anchor up on them until the bite went away.  Ended the day 3 short of our walleye/sauger limit.   Talked with others indicating the bite on Thursday was very good, Friday was tough, and Saturday was a bit better.  We took the boat to the dealer for YE service, so we are done for the year. ...oh and got all three snowmobiles started too.  This was a first.
