Finally the Big Day

Recommended Posts

Captain B.R.K

The day finally came and my new hunting partner has come home! We were excited to see her after seeing her days after she was born. Picked her up Friday and have had nothing but fun each day....I know, I know, it's early and I"m sure it will wear off wink.gif Our little GSP was the runt and of the litter, but shows a lot of love and companionship. Still trying to build her independence, but that will come in time.

I'll post some pictures when I get them downloaded.

This dog business is a lot of work grin.gif I get home and all I do is play, play, play with the pup. I figure the more time I put into her now the more I'll get out of her in the field.

Here are a few pictures of Reigny, our newest family member!

My pup was the runt of the litter and she is the best dog i have ever had. She just turned a year old and at 3 minths old was pointing pheasants. She is a pointing lab. She is a great dog and you are doing it right by all the play time. Here is one thing you MUST DO. Take your pup on a walk every night. Expose her to new things and let her go discover things like tall grass creeks and the like. also make her overcome a few simple obstacles. It sure builds confidence in a Runt. Once they learn they can overcome they are unstopable.

Cap,

Congrats! I know we talked about breeders way back after you decided on going with a Shorthair. Where did she come from?

Just curious as that saddle marking makes her look so much like the shorty I lost last February that it brought a tear to my eye.

Irv,

I do remember talking to you early in my search for a GSP breeder. I went with a place in Rice Lake, WI.

Reigny is her name and she is going to be 12 weeks old this coming Tuesday. I can't believe we have had her for about 1 month now! Every day is a learning day for her and I, but we make if fun learning.

I've been soaking up all the info. in this forum and reading, re-reading the info. here about puppies. I want to make a good hunting dog so making sure to do the right vs. the wrong things.

      Nice Crappie!
    • Rick G
      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
    • Fish Head
      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.
