Survey- Who's runnin' mutts out there?

3 posts in this topic

Just wanted to know who's running a mutt out there? You can imagine the looks when I let ol' Pepper out (Border collie/ healer) and put on his vest. The little guy does alright, I'm surprised. I took him out last year just for fun and dang if he didn't flush atleast 30+ pheasants for me. smile.gif I can't wait to take him out this year!

About 10 years ago, we used to have a Rottweiler cross that loved to flush pheasants and then would stand over the down bird. She never did learn to fetch them back to us but it sure did make hunting alot easier when she was with. wink.gif She didn't like duck hunting because of the rain!!

Ya, I run mutts.

Dog #1 is the better bird dog. He is a chocolate lab/?springer spaniel? mix. Basically chocolate lab looking. Little hyper, but will hunt very, very hard. Good pheasant dog. This past year was my first duck hunting, and was very impressed with his retrieves.

Dog #2 is the better house dog, and usually does NOT go hunting. She is a Pit Bull/ Rottwieler mix. She looks like a wimpy Pit Bull. I get some real funny looks from other hunters when out in the field with her. She is the better grouse dog, though. For some reason, those birds are her thing. She won't retrieve one, but sniffs or sees them very well.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
