    Rescue off oak orchard !?

    Fully agree with whaler. I'm sure there's people reading here that knew one or both of the people involved. God forbid if they're family. And the last thing they want to hear is that it was stupidity or arrogance that killed someone. Use your brain... Try to imagine it being you... Or your old man... or your friend that was dead.. keep your accusations to yourself. And learn something from the accident. There's no need to point fingers regardless of weather poor judgement was involved. I'm sure the captain of the boat is beating himself up plenty enough without your comments. And the other guy is dead.

    I wouldn't try to defend your comment. No matter what happened, someone lost their life and I'm positive they didn't deserve that. Everyone has done things on the water that weren't 100% safe and been lucky enough to come home. It didn't work that way for them. Since the only other witness is dead... nice one man

    Walleye fishing on Oneida Lake

    did Oneida out of Bridgeport yesterday. Had a steady pick of eater size fish on nothing specific. They hit purple Colorado blades, orange willow blades, white and black sticks, perch sticks. Seemed like if you could find em they would hit. 36 to 40fow. also seemed like slower was better. I tried 2.5 then 2.2 and finally started picking up fish around 1.8 - 1.9

    well the new pup put 6 pounds on in two weeks. The tables have turned. Dutch is no longer the antagonizing puppy

    Dogs

    the other thing you can try is getting them tired out before you get in the boat. hard to do I know, but if you can get them a nice long run or some water retrieves to burn off energy they'll be a lot more well behaved in the boat (and by that I mean hopefully passed out in the cuddy). A tired dog is a good dog. Let us know how it goes

    Dogs

    I say take the dog for a half day trip somewhere BEFORE you have a long boating vacation planned. After a 4 hour trip you'll know weather dog can handle it and weather they cant. And you'll know if you want to be in the boat with the dog that long or not. Some dogs can handle boat time just fine and some cant. It all depends on your dog. My main concerns if you do take the dog are the heat and amount of sun they would get exposed to in a boat. Its not a great environment for them to be in if you don't have shade for them to be in, especially flat days mid-summer when the water is like a frying pan. Things to consider. FYI getting a dogs back wet (aka swimming) and then letting them sit in the sun isn't a means of cooling them off either, eventually the water just warms up and they're right back to being too hot. I take mine with me on short trips, but if I'm going to be on the water all day I leave him home.

    As of July of last year Marshoy is no longer breeding. I'm not sure why, but the last time I had talked to them I remember them mentioning that they were planning on getting out of it. I know of a couple of breeders that have pups on the ground now. If you're interested shoot me a PM and I can give you their info.

    yeah it does take a lot of time for a full coat to come in on them. I've heard up to 3 years. So Dutch got an infection this summer and had to have a drain put in. The Vet shaved the spot and I'm thinking sh*t its going to take a year to grow that hair back. well it was slow for sure but I believe its fully grown in now. Id say it took a good 6 months

    New bird dog puppy

    I actually never trimmed his hair. I never even brush him hardly (except to remove burrs). He hunts through thick cover so hard (lets be honest he's a bit clumsy sometimes) that he actually rubs it all off and it doesn't grow back fast enough to grow into long traditional furnishings. Below ill post a picture of when he was about 6 months old and had never really busted brush vs. a couple pictures after a week of hunting hard in Maine. You'll see what I mean. He's never been a super hairy griff anyway. His furnishings and coat are on the short coarse side. The female he's out of looks exactly the same so I'm wondering if its somewhat genetic And I feel terrible when he gets so raw. I do everything I can to try and prevent it, Vaseline on his brows, trying to slow him down in cover, but he just gets beat up after a week straight of hunting. Its not like its even all day every day. its just so many days of hunting in a row in thick cover I think that tears him up
