      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.

gsp peeing in crate

Recommended Posts

i picked up a new gsp pup 12 days ago, she is 8 weeks and 2 days old. the problem i have been having since friday night is she pees in her crate. she was fine sunday thru friday, but saturday morning it was wet. i blocked off the back half of the crate with an adjustable wall that i can move back as she grows, but this didn't seem to help. the area in there now is only twice as big as she is, just enough to turn around and lay down. i took out the towel we had in there for her to lay on tuesday, thinking that it was soaking it up and not making it seem wet to her, but she still goes pee in the crate. she won't poop in there (not yet anyway). she is let outside every day to go to the bathroom and play every three hours, day and night, whether we are there or not, (i have a good friend that i am going to owe alot of cases of beer to for letting her play during the day wink.gif), plus any other time we are with her and she starts sniffing around. i don't think she is nervouse when she is in there, she hardly makes a peep anymore and sometimes she is sleeping in the middle of the night or the morning when we go to let her out. she has only gone in the house a couple of times when we weren't watchting close enough, she sure is a quick little squirt that can be hard to keep track of. grin.gif i don't mind cleaning it up, but i really don't want her to get used to sitting in it. i'm afraid that if that happens, we will never get her house trained and she will be a very dirty dog. frown.gif she won't be in the crate during the day very much longer, i am building a kennel as soon as the ground thaws for her to be in during the day, but i would like to have the crate problem fixed before it is too late. i know this is getting long but i wanted to include as much info as possible. any advice would be greatly appreciated as i have no other ideas on how to fix this. confused.gif

I've had pups with bladder or vaginal infections do this. Watch puppy when outside to see if she countinues to try and pee numerous times after going the first time, with little or no discharge after first time. If that is case take urine sample and have vet test it. Vet may want to see dog too.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.

      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question...

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
