      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.

Just Something About A Vet In Willmar?

Recommended Posts

slotlimit

I would first like to say I'm not telling anyone where to take their dog or that this Vet is better then any other. For my first 3 dogs I went to South 71 Vet but being I moved to he Atwater area with my new dog I tried to get in with the vet in Atwater. She was so busy it was going to take a month before she could get to my pup. So I did some checking around in Willmar on prices etc. The Vet at Pet Welleness Center is a super nice guy and has done everything I have ever asked. One of the best things is the price. On Thursdays (he is only in the office on evenings I believe) you get 2 shots for the price of one.

Where is the Pet Wellness Center?

I used to goto a rural Spicer vet, he was cheap on the shots and spring checkup stuff but when it came time for xrays (for hip checking) or surgery, he couldn't do it, he'd refer me to Willmar Pet Hospital. In fact when my 12 year old lab developed a mammary tumor, he said nothing could be done, three months later we put her down because it had grown to the size of a grapefruit.

Then I got to thinking about the continuity of care and using one vet for the easy, cheap checkups and the other vet for the complicated stuff and decided for the dogs sake to pay a little more and just use one vet, Willmar Pet Hospital. When my 9 year old female lab developed 3-4 mammary gland tumors last summer, he operated and cut them off. I expect her to be around for a few more hunting seasons. I think I got bad advice from the cheap rural Spicer vet about my 12 year old dog.

Sometimes you get what you pay for.

You might reach more people from the Willmar area if you put this under the Willmar forum....

It's on the corner of 8th st and 19th Ave. It's just a plain white house turned into a business. He has his shingle out in the front yard.

Blackjack,

In all fairness to your rural vet, there is a big difference in the overall health of a 12 year old lab and an 8 or 9 year old one (think about a 60 year old person versus an 80-90 year old one). There could have been lots of factors there, but 12 is pretty old to be doing any major surgeries.

      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 .

      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'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,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.
