Ate minnow with hook

Recommended Posts

On Saturday my lab ate a minnow that was still on the hook. It was a #6 hook so pretty small, with about 8 to 10 inches of line. Not showing any signs of problems just wondering if anyone else has ever had this experience. I am hoping she will just pass it with no problem. Any thought or concerns out there?

I would be very concerned if the hook gets caught anywhere on its way through. If it were my dog I would be at the vet immediately whether or not there are any signs of a problem...you can never be too careful, especially with a family member!

This isn't the time to save any money on

vet bills. Get him in there asap and get

him checked out. Be watchful when a dog is

in the boat. Mind love to eat minnows. Even

on the end of a hook!

Went in and talked with my vet yesterday, he said that most dogs will pass a hook (especially a small one) unless is gets caught on something. He suggested as long as her behavior, eating, drinking and [PoorWordUsage] are normal that most likely things are fine. Just need to keep an eye on her to make sure things are good.

Mine ate a smaller crappie jig with a waxworm on it last winter. I talked to my vet and was told the same thing, keep an eye on the dog and be sure she is [PoorWordUsage] and peeing and eating and drinking and acting normal, everything turned out fine for me. You could run in and spend the money on the xrays but I would just give it a few days and see how the dog acts, you'll know if something is not right.

Well my dog had a present for me on our walk last night. She passed the hook and the line!! I was relieved to see it and in the future will make sure whoever is fishing with me is careful with their hook and minnow.

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
