      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.

I will bet there is nothing that will work, but is there a toy that my 1-year-old will not destroy in five minutes in his kennel. I think he gets pretty bored during the day.

do a net search, most pet supply stores have them.

i got on from my vet years ago when my lab wouldn't stop licking her legs (hot spots). you don't need much peanut butter just coat the inside and they will work all day trying to get it out.

The kong is very popualr. You can find it anywhere. Thgey make them in different colors for different strengths. My spring is a "powerful chewer" and will need the next level up when I buy him another kong.

We also have been buying these nylon bones for chewing. They are kind of a dental thing for the dogs, but the larger ones seem to hold up pretty well.

Yet another vote for the kong and I just put a small layer of peanut butter in it and its good for a couple days in the crate with my one year old lab. As for water I actually never have yet left water in their with her but as soon as I get home I give her plenty and she seems to be doing well.

On the water subject. i keep my younger dog (8mths) in her travel kennel when no one is home and and don,t put any water in with her and haven,t with any of my dogs. never had any problems and sometimes its 10 or 11 hours. she just loves her kennel. i leave my older dog have run of the house when gone. my young dog was a real pain to house break, older one just peed on floor once and got it and all my prior dogs were easy. on potty training young one i just stayed persistant and stayed positive and gave lots of praise when doing things right and she finally got it. i teach all my dogs to potty on command for when i,m traveling and at motels.

I would recommend the Triple Crown Everlasting Fun Ball. Yea...thats the actual name so you can search it on the web. This ball has held up well to my lab.....and his kongs are fairly beat up (but a great toy).

This ball has a small hole to allow them to get treats out. It takes them a while time to get them out! It's a softer feeling rubber but still looks the way it did when we bought it (our kongs have a bunch of chunks missing). I was impressed!

The peanut butter in the kong works well....frozen is best!

Freezing them -- never thought of that. Great idea!!!

Do I give them one every day? and if I forget will they be mad?

Just when you don't want them bugging you!!! I will give it to them once in a while, I mix it up with other toys. Once a day is probably fine....not sure whta the calorie intake would be for peanut butter and the dogs diet (if he is on one).

And yep, DONT FORGET!!!.......unless you want to wake up to a growling...drooling dog.....standing on top of you...staring at you with his teeth showing....in the middle of the night! j/k tongue.gif

      Thanks guys.

      Up until about seven or eight years ago we were on Head-o-lakes bay. Minimal to no Rustys. Just the old school guys with the big blue boxer-mit claws. We were seeing rounded gobies.  We're on Frazer now. Wow! It's indescribable how many of those buggers there are. We've been trying to do our part by having frequent crawfish boils. Haven't made a dent but fun and tasty to try.

      will definitely be hunting turkeys again this year.  Love chasing these birds. Intend to go the archery route this year for the first time.  I have 2 kids that always are excited every year, until a couple of early mornings wain thier enthusiasm!  Figuring archery will allow me go on those days the kids dont want to wake up and I think I have something figured out.  Hope my skills will be up to the challenge.

      I've had very good luck with them also. Always pick some up before heading out on the lake.

      Was thinking about heading up the shore for some open water fishing. Was just wondering if their is alot of ice floating around and if not wat kind of wind would make it difficult to fish from shore? Thanks

      There is a bunch of walleyes in Mille lacs and for the first time in a long time there is  bait fish for them to eat. Mille lacs is a son of a gun to fish if there is a bunch of bait for walleyes to eat. It’s still one the best walleye fisheries in the world.

      Wait until open water season.  It was ranked #1 in the country for bass for a reason.  Its also ranked #6 in the nation for muskies too if you have enough patience to target them. A recent review of Mille Lacs was conducted by an independent Biologist from Lake Erie and found that what the DNR has done with that lake has been fair, accurate, and appropriate in terms of regulation/harvest/restrictions.  Course, some business owners might say otherwise but the science and data has been found to be true.

      I did not draw an early season permit.  I may be able to snag a surplus season B, otherwise it will be a later season for me this spring.  The birds are getting SMART.  They have refused to listen to any calls and they are decoy shy so I haven't been using calls or decoys for a while now.  Rather, I just sit there and wait on a travel route and hope they walk within range (sort of like deer hunting I guess).  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.  Scouting is obviously important.  What has also really helped is the use of Winchester Longbeard XR ammo.  I have harvested turkeys out to 60 yards with it in recent years.

      Found out we will have up to 17 guns up for grabs. Plus all the of other prizes. That does not include the 3 guns in the 3 gun raffle. The 3 gun raffle tickets must be purchased before the banquet, so let me know if you need some they are 5 bucks each.
