Actually my golden retriever, disaster struck the other night, a #7 taildancer one set of hooks in the chest, the other in the lips, thanks to the help of a couple of others at the ramp 11:30 at night boat ramp surgery was performed, all but one hook removed, trip to the vet the next day for the other. lesson learned keep all lures and hooks away. especially at night because thats when things will go wrong. Thanks to the guys who helped me out.

We nearly had a similar incident a few weeks ago. I went with a buddy to canoe down the St. Croix up in the St. Croix State park area. We were paddling and fishing and my buddy had his 7 month old retriever in the front of the canoe with him. She sat still for probably 5 hours and 59 minutes out of the 6 hour trip.

As we paddled back up stream to unhook my rapala from a log my firend put his rod off to the side and let his lure hang over the side of the canoe. It was proably about a foot above the water and 2 feet over the edge of the canoe so we thought it would be well out of reach of the dog. But she saw the pretty orange dangly thing and just had to have it so she dove off the side of the canoe to grab it. It ended up hitting her in the chest,luckily it only got tangled in her fur. But she freaked out when she realized there was a pretty good current in the spot we were in and she had to swim hard to get back to the canoe. But we got her pulled back in and got the trebble hook out of her fur and she was fine the rest of the trip.

I guess she needs a little more training yet.

I talked with my Dad and father-in law about their experience at the dock late one night with whom I now believe to be you and your companion. My Dad was very impressed with the dogs patience while he removed hooks. Glad the dog is doing well and I'll pass it on to both of them.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
