Morning Report

10 posts in this topic

Went out for a few hours this morning on potato and didn't move much. One walleye around 24" and a few rockets. The good thing is I am home and will be able to do it almost when ever i want. Also, I will be working at Northern Bait again this summer. South end of main, turn west at the funeral home on Hwy 71 south of 34 and we are right there on the corner. Stop in a say hi or get the most recent fishing report from folks who actually fish. Jonah

Jonah you have to get me a report for where to go before the weekend grin.gif. I don't suppose it will matter anyhow. Lots to do at the cabin right now still. I have to go to the deer woods and seed some food plots too but hopefully I can squeeze in some fishing time smile.gif. But if I get a chance I will be in for some shinners.

Jonah how big is that ski in up avatar? and did you pull that baby outta trap? I was wondering what the biggest Pike you've seen outta trap because our first time there last Saturday landed about 30 pike avg being around 3lbs and many pike in the 7-10 pound range. Trap seems to have a good population of big pike and ski's.

the ski is 51" by 24" and is still swimming or at least it was last time i saw. the biggest pike was probably around 25 lb, i have seen a few over 40" but lots in that 30 to 36" range. Jonah

      I know its not attached to you. But the issue is with it being attached to the dog and if its running full speed and it gets caught on something. The injuries can occur when its a sudden stop and the collar around the neck is pulled hard from the weight of the dog.   Sounds like to you need to get back to the basics with the check cord and get back to sit, stay and come. You can work her with the check cord in a hallway at home with the doors closed, then move to a larger  grassy area etc. Keep the sessions short and praise, praise and praise some more when she comes back when called.   You never want to give a command you cant enforce and that's where the check cord comes in handy. We have all been there before. But if your not confident with her in the water next to a road you need to go back and revisit those commands and how to enforce them until she is ready. its just not worth risking injury.   You have to make the retrieving fun and if she doesn't bring it back your done for that session, and then she doesn't get to retrieve. Let her see you put the dummy away and then start another session at a later time. Praise, praise and praise when she does it correctly.   Dogs will pick up on your body language frustrations etc.  Just takes lots of reps and keep them short and be positive and she will get there.

      I actually don't have that long leash attatched to me. Its 100' I believe and the only reason I leave it on her is because Round Lake is right by a busy road so if she wants to bolt after a rabbit or something I can quickly grab that leash. Also sometimes she'll grab the dummy and want to swim around with it so I give a few tugs to let her know her job is to bring it to me, not swim in circles. It's just a safety measure because she isn't quite ready for fully off leash training just yet. I almost never actually need to grab it.    Thanks for the advice though, the last thing I'd ever want to do is hurt a dog, especially mine. I never throw the dummy past where it's safe to walk so if she did get it wrapped in cattails or something and got stuck I'd quickly get her.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.
