Swimmers Tail???

2 posts in this topic

I have never heard of this until a neighbor mentioned it...I have a yellow lab 9 months old who is just in love with the water. The temp is about 47 to 57 degree's. Any information on this topic would be helpful. Rocket

Also known as Limber Tail. If you do a search there is all kinds of information on it.

Basically the dogs tail goes limp and hangs down for a day or two after swimming in cold water. It does not effect the dog long term. It looks as though the tail is broke in the middle. You see it more often in the spring than in the fall.

Good Luck!

Ken

      Friday night until about 9:00 they were aggressive as heck, and jigging worked very well.  It seemed like after that they didn't want much to do with jigging, and the set lines were key.

      Similar report today. Marked tons of fish but only caught a half-dozen between two of us. The fish would just stare at our baits and then move on.
