I found a "tuff" of black hair on my yellow male just yesterday. Thought it was dirt, but nope. Black hair.

Will that hurt his stud service price or interest?

I agree -- it is not a big deal but do you think anyone else would object with stud service?

I doubt you will have to concern yourself with stud service. If the dog turns out to be some type of champion then maybe and it would be a very small maybe you would have to be concerned.

As long as the pedigree is clean that is what is most important.

That is what I was thinking.

I have seen a lot of dogs with various patches. Don't worry about his stud value until you put an AFC or FC on him.

What type of paper work are you looking for?

Found it. It was his AKC papers -- now I need to send them in. His litter was registered but not him.

Hitman,

There are a lot of dogs in the trials that are not perfectly marked. Many have white in excess of the AKC show standard but it does not affect the trial stuff. I have seen some pretty odd looking dogs trial. Sime in coloration some that are blind in one eye, some that are missing a foot and other things. They all do well in the field though. Unless you are trotting around the show ring or it is in some way linked to a physical or tempermental trait a little bit of off color patch should not hurt you. If you breed a black to your yellow you will get mixed colors anyway. As stated there are ways to "cover" it up. Lady Clairol is used a lot at shows. Just For Men too to cover up some of the gray of an aging dog.

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??
    • side_laker
      Thinking about bring my wheelhouse up there tomorrow far a day of fishing and spend the night any new reports 
    • tview
      Was on green Thurs night was able to find a few fish in 24ft between 4:30 and 7:00  bite was OK we ending up keeping about 10 nice eaters. heading back out today

      Was on Green Thursday , fished from 3:30 to 8:30. Caught 3 nice crappies and some small perch. Funny thing the crappies were caught between 4 and 5. Not a bite after dark,  they  ( or something) was there but would not bite on anything I put in front of them. Caught the 3 in deep water with a frostee and minnow. Good Luck Moose.  I may try Little Elk this afternoon

      The wing bolt on my auger sheared off yesterday. So I spent some time getting the bolt out. Then I was off looking for the strongest bolts I could find. The auger is good to go again. Seeing I have about 5000 holes drilled with it upgrading the bolts is worth it. There is a lot of ice this year and I am not having any issue powering through it with dcd985 and the clam plate. I am getting some of the ice chips out of the hole before busting through, but I did that with the lazer mag too.  I think I am going to hit green lake after dark for some crappies with my father in law.

      Mielkez, I thought that the area you are now targeting was supposed to get the most snow from the coming storm. Cliff
    • AlwaysFishing23
      That’s exactly what finding right now nothing shallow. 20 seems key.
    • james_walleye
      I'd concentrate on the buffalo/annandale area just northwest of the metro. There's a ton of good lakes. Clearwater, Pulaski, pleasant. The list is long. 
    • Mielkez
      Alright guys. Change of plans. My group is concerned about lake travel. After consulting a snowfall map we've decided to stay south of the line that runs from basically Duluth to Lake Winnie area. Were coming from Wisconsin and don't know anything about MN lakes. Rather not do Mille Lacs. Looking for something a little smaller. Not asking for spots. Is there a lake within and hour or two to the north or east of the cities that fishes strong? Looking for panfish mostly with some walleye mixed in. Thanks. 
    • Rick G
      Pretty sure you DON'T know where this one is.... I see you creeping around, looking for my spots...lol
