Early Water Work

8 posts in this topic

Got some early water work in with my Griffon this weekend. Had some help from the boys as well. Lots of fun to train and have the kids helping me out. The boys love it and the dog is sleeping soundly at my feet tonight.

His NAVHDA registered name is Des Chein's Digger.

Would that be the same as an AKC registered name?

AKC and NAVHDA both recognize each other.. So yes it would be the same if he were to register the dog with AKC.

Scott nice pic's... I have had Belle in the water quite a bit over the past two weeks getting ready for the Utility Test. Griff's sure do like to swim!!!

How has the fishing down your way been this spring?

As our water warms up here (50+ degrees) it's starting to get really good for both panfish and walleye's.

I guess it would be if he was registered AKC.

Let me know how the UT test goes. I will not be doing the UT this year and I probably not at all with Zeus (maybe the next dog). I just do not have the time to train for it at this point in my life.

I have not been out open water fishing at this point. Sounds like people did decent for the opener around here. I did not even wet a line. Headed to Leech for a long weekend at the end of May. Really looking forward to it.

Scott, I will let you know how the test goes. Lots of work to prepare. Picking up 6 ducks next week to begin training for the live duck search. That should be interesting. Also doing alot of discipline work with her.

Zeus really does sound like a terrific dog and I look forward to hunting behind him down the road. Would be great to see him and Belle work a field.

Leech should be really good by the end of May. You will do well. I was out late today in the wind and did really well on the walleye's. They were up shallow and were hungry! Glad that the winter is over!

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. 
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
