Anyone recommend a good waterproof e-collar for under $300? Looking for a simple single dog unit for a lab. I have used a couple Tritronics Classic 70's in the past - both which worked great until they were about 2 years old then they went kaput.

I had a Tri Tronics Field 70 for 13 years and never had a problem, Tri Tronics would get my vote. Have a Pro 100 now and love it.

Sportdog Wetland 400 or Sportdog FieldTrainer 400. I think both are under $180.

I have a DT systems for my Britt and it works great. I know they make a waterproof version for waterfowl hunting. Might be worth checking out.

There are a fair number of different set ups on the market. I was looking to spend about that much and ended up going with the Field 90 EXP. It has 6 levels of continuous and 6 levels of momentary. I bought it last summer and have had no problems to speak of yet. The TT website is listing it at $338.00.

I ended up going with that brand,even though there is only a two year warranty since it has been around a bit longer. I also talked with many people who use this and other brands and TT got the best reviews out of quality. A friend of mine has a Sportdog FieldTrainer 400 and has had to send it in a few times to get fixed (another friend also has it but has had no problems at all with it).

I hunted pheasant, grouse, and ducks this year and the collar was put through many different environments. The best recommendation I could give is to do some research.

I have the dogtra. works out to 3/4 mile and both the collar and transmitter are waterproof. 127 levels of excitement, also has a nick, continous and a buzz page signal. my 8 month lab uses about a #37. When I want him to come, I hit the page twice and he comes a running. very rarely do I have to include a nick. Last weekend out on Milacs he was over 1/2 mile out and on a dead run, wind was blowing the opposite direction. I hit the page he stopped dead in his tracks looked at me and came running back as fast as he could. I never said a word.

They have them on the site that starts with an e and ends in a y for 300. The 2500, not the 2502

Look at the Dogtra 2300NCP. It lists at $299 but a quick google search will find it cheaper. I really like that it has lithium batteries which recharge in just a couple hours.

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air. 
    • toddrun
      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy! 
    • delcecchi
      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
