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

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.

      Is Stoney point access open to the public or just for camper access?

      I purchased this exact boat last year just for Trout.  16ft Alumacraft, 25hp Yamaha, Helix 5 humminbird. This year I purchased a 50# thrust Minn Kota for the bow, I just haven't installed it yet.  Looking forward to it!

      Cutbait is all I use for cats on the red. Cut goldeye, sucker and frogs are my go to baits. Typically a 4-6 oz no roll sinker with a foot leader or shorter. Cast it down current and wait. Caught a lot of cats that way. We actually caught eyes doing that too but not many. Haven't tried bait paste or anything like that but would imagine it would work
