I'm also curious as to who the breeder is as I'm looking for a GSP next spring and trying to find as many as I can to research.

Thanks

Well my wife and I picked up a GSP this weekend from a breeder in the Willmer area. He was a little older than I wanted(12 weeks), but I absolutely love the dog, couldn't be happier with him. He already loves being around anybody/strangers and visitors that came to play with him. Already likes my wife better then me(darn it!), but he is really good about retriving and coming when called and is fun to watch him find and point the pheasant wings the breeder gave us. His dad is 95 pounds and this one has big paws, the breeder said he is going to be a big boy! Thanks guys for the advice. Anybody know where a guy can get some pen raised pigion/pheasants/quail here in the cities?

Hi guys, I got them from Joe and Shannon. I wish I knew there last name.I will try to find it I also have there # at home so I will grab it when I have a chance. He had 1 other male left from this year(white/liver). If you are a hunter I would suggest this guy all the way. He is a die hard hunter, leases the local low areas from the farmers and hunts/trains dogs. Spends a full month in Kansas hunting quail running his dog 6 days a week. He took me out and showed me the dad hunt for over 2 hours. I was simply shocked at what he could do. Dog never stoped weaving back and forth and never lifted his nose, pointed birds from a long distance and after the bird was shot he would search full speed until he found it. Owner never put on a shock color, said the dog knew his range and knew what to do(he was right!) Joe could point to the right and the dog would go hunt the right side of the field same thing with the left. I don't know what it takes to be a field champ, but Joe showed me the dad has 48 in his line and the mom had 7. I gues his one of his past litters was a Westminster champion. The temperament was also outstanding, could not be more friendly.

For pen raised birds, try calling the Horse & Hunt Club in Prior Lake or the Oakwood Game Farm in Princeton. Another source is the Star Tribune or even the internet. It shouldn't be too hard to locate the critters.

Good luck and enjoy the dog. You won't have any regrets until he chews up his first shoe!!

Congratulations! Sounds like you've found a good litter. To become an AKC Field Champion requires a lot of training, perseverance, a little luck and a talented dog. A FC dog has proven itself in competition with other dogs and will perform consistently and do it with speed and style. To me it's one of the biggest achievements in dog sports.

      Work has pretty much kept me from fishing since late May😕 Did have the chance to hit the water for a few hours yesterday. I opted to hit the river for some smallie action with my limited time. The Sippi didn't disappoint, the brown bass had the feed bag on big time!. I hooked over 30 fish in 3 hrs, most being 15-17inchers with a few bigger and a few smaller mixed in.   Weightless stick baits rigged on a 1/0  is all I needed to throw.

      Hi all - new to the forum.  I live in NE Wyoming and am an avid fly fisherman.  While I love fishing for trout out west, warm water species on the fly is a blast.   Me and a buddy are headed out this coming weekend for a BWCA trip.  We have a couple of days on the front end of the trip to fish.  I'm planning on towing my drift boat from NE Wyoming and have spot picked out in North Dakota to float for smallies on the fly.  I'm looking at trying to get an additional float in somewhat near Ely before our entry into the Boundary Waters.  It's a 16' drift boat and doesn't really draft much.  I'm planning on having a small trolling motor just in case I need some additional power.  Looking mainly to target smallmouth and pike.   I've looked at a few areas to float, but wanted some advice.  I have a few options that I think meet what I'm looking for:   1) St. Louis River near Hoyt Lakes.  Looked like there are couple of access points to launch and take out below Hwy 110 2) Cloquet River - Hwy 7 to the mouth. 3) Bigfork River - From Ivan Crawford to Reedy Flats   Can anyone provide any advice these or provide any other recommendations?   Thanks in advance!

      I have been doing pretty good bass fishing locally.  A lot of numbers, but lacking in really big quality fish that I have caught the last two seasons.  Biggest I could catch this season so far is 18 inches.

      Welcome to the forum. Downriggers work best for suspended fish in deep water. Most river's are shallow and rocky. If you want to fish the bottom in a river a bottom bouncer might be best to not lose a lot of expensive gear. Imo. Good luck.

      I have a Cannon Optima and Iam anxious to try downriggers for walleye.  There is a bottom tracking feature on Optima.  I think most walleyes are close to bottom so I think it is a good tactic.  I am, however, nervous about using Fishhawk XD4 with on river.  A screwup would really be expensive!

      i'm not real involved yet. my first meeting. long story but my parents belonged to it years ago. after the cabin lake had the 2 consecutive years of severe winterkill i dogged the heck out of the fisheries people in grand rapids.🤭 i found out through the watershed assoc they talked them into restocking sunfish and bass into the lake. they did that this past june. so i figured for the 15 bucks join!!!!!   my next battle is with the township......🤣 trying to get them to grade part of our road going into the cabin!!!!! i already sent the letter but havent heard from them yet. since i've retired from being a union thug.......i gotta pick a few battles to keep my skills sharp!!!!!!!!🤪🤭👍

      That's awesome that you are involved in that! I hope you have a good trip up!
    • smurfy
      I'm heading up sometime the last week in Aug . I joined the Jessie lake watershed assoc and they have a meeting on the 27 I want to attend.

      Definitely in the dog days of summer. Catching a few walleye here and there on the river. Hasn't been too hot which makes me hopeful for an early fall fishing season. I'll post more when the fish turn their feed bags on and the leaves start falling. Until then I'll just work more and get winter gear ready
