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.

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!

    • that would be samanthasquatch 
    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
