Game Fair Dock Jump

Recommended Posts

fishnhooks

I am wondering if anyone knows the furthest distance for the dock jump today (Friday). When I left today... I am proud to say... my dog "Sam" was the longest jump of 22 feet and I am wondering how long that lasted? I know there are many dogs that jump further, but I was still pretty proud! (last year he jumped only 14 feet) We were invited to the finals today, but we were not going to stay for them. So if anyone knows what the results were, I would appreciate knowing the results.
Thanks,
"hooks"

I think the record for there as well as the country is 24 ft.But not exactly sure.
I know it is over 23 ft as there was a dog there last year that was seen shortly after the fair on ESPN jumping in competition at 23 feet +
The record holder is a small black lab from Minnesota.Can't seem to remember all the details though.

I just finished reading a story about Minnesota's own "Little Morgan" in this week's Outdoor News. He has the record of 26 feet, 6 inches, they say that no other dog has broken 24 feet! The article is an interesting read, "Little Morgan" has even been nominated for an ESPY.

I think I may be the proud owner of an undiscovered champion.....Luci loves to launch off the dock. Do they measure from exactly where the dock starts??

I just read that article this morning myself. Pretty impressive jumper there!
Does anyone know the longest jump for yesterday (Friday)?

I met Benny there and we saw a lab go 26' on Sunday later in the afternoon. Lots of dogs and people. Most were nice but also most do not mind their own dogs noses so the occasional flare up of growls and teeth are heard.

A good time. I managed 17' with my Chessie. She slipped on her last try or I saw the big 20 comming. Maybe another time. Way to go on the 23'.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
