Finally the Big Day

9 posts in this topic

The day finally came and my new hunting partner has come home! We were excited to see her after seeing her days after she was born. Picked her up Friday and have had nothing but fun each day....I know, I know, it's early and I"m sure it will wear off wink.gif Our little GSP was the runt and of the litter, but shows a lot of love and companionship. Still trying to build her independence, but that will come in time.

I'll post some pictures when I get them downloaded.

This dog business is a lot of work grin.gif I get home and all I do is play, play, play with the pup. I figure the more time I put into her now the more I'll get out of her in the field.

Here are a few pictures of Reigny, our newest family member!

My pup was the runt of the litter and she is the best dog i have ever had. She just turned a year old and at 3 minths old was pointing pheasants. She is a pointing lab. She is a great dog and you are doing it right by all the play time. Here is one thing you MUST DO. Take your pup on a walk every night. Expose her to new things and let her go discover things like tall grass creeks and the like. also make her overcome a few simple obstacles. It sure builds confidence in a Runt. Once they learn they can overcome they are unstopable.

Cap,

Congrats! I know we talked about breeders way back after you decided on going with a Shorthair. Where did she come from?

Just curious as that saddle marking makes her look so much like the shorty I lost last February that it brought a tear to my eye.

Irv,

I do remember talking to you early in my search for a GSP breeder. I went with a place in Rice Lake, WI.

Reigny is her name and she is going to be 12 weeks old this coming Tuesday. I can't believe we have had her for about 1 month now! Every day is a learning day for her and I, but we make if fun learning.

I've been soaking up all the info. in this forum and reading, re-reading the info. here about puppies. I want to make a good hunting dog so making sure to do the right vs. the wrong things.

      Well better you found it now and not this weekend or you would be SOL fore sure being the 4th.  Nothing wrong with a good old lake bath though!  Good Luck.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Use leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama.

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.
