      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

lab pup eats everything he can fit in mouth

Recommended Posts

Is this common to all dogs or just labs. Pup is 4 months old. I feed him plenty, but he would just as soon eat rocks, sticks, deer poop, cat poop, anything rotten, dirt, birch bark. He has the shits now and occassionally throws up sticks and whatever. Try to keep an eye on him when he is out but he gets into stuff quick. Has quite a nose for anything rotten.

deja vu

Sounds like your pup is acting like every pup I've ever owned. smile.gif I was always told it is typical pup behavior...

Even older dogs will often eat cat or dog feces.

Sometimes a small spray bottle of 'taste deterrent for dogs' can be used to spray on objectionable items, if you're quick enough to spot and treat them before the dog finds them. smile.gif

Good luck.

Its hard to stay right on top of them, but if you want to control this behavior you need to be with him at all times in order to say NO or Leave It when he tries todo something like that. Its the only way to learn. If you don't correct it they learn that this is okay.

Labs are orally fixated dogs. What fits in usually goes down. At 16 weeks of age, your pup is starting to lose his puppy teeth so if he ain't shredding it before he eats it, I would be surprised. Be very cautious. Today I had an 8 year old lab who had gotten into the garbage last night who appears to have eaten a plastic bag and it now appears to be stuck in his stomach. Clients may not be able to afford to do surgery. Not a good prognosis. Any pup under 2 years of age (or more) should be monitored to make sure they do not eat anything they should not. I will now fall off of my soap box. Had a rough day, saw this title and had to put my two cents in. smirk.gifsmirk.gif

fishroger I have a pup thats 4 mo. old and he eats anything. He had the runs 2 weeks ago and my Vet had him go on Metronadizole for 5 days and he was better in 2 days. He likes goose, bunny and deer waste. The vet said there loaded with parasites. Feed him a mixture of hamburger and rice only and if he's not getting better in 2 days he will probably need an antibiotic to clear him up.Hope this helps. DrJ

      I will be going out for the night bite on green this week. I need to find some more fish as the wife wants a fresh fish dinner.

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .

      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.
