since when its dog's fault?

Recommended Posts

went out on flake this am with fellow fmer, croix. after hittin weedlinesn bar n some structures with only one spooky follow to show for it.. as i dropped croix off,i was heading to lake 2 so had to took the channel, as some1 was working on channel for muskie so i decide to slow down n give er room. as the guy i was watching startin to shoutin n bend his back as he hooked up the ski at boatside. the rod was bendin like crazy! other guy just stand there with net in the hand just watching the show. as in the progress of fightnin the dog in boat got up n just stand on the deck waggin the tail watchin the guy... when muskie surfaced and shake its head, the guy lost it. and he startin to swear, feets stompin, hit the water with rod, yelling at net man, and startin to beat the dog with the hat..............

this got me thinkin... since when its dog's fault that the guy lost the fish?? i m fine with swearin, break rod in half,feet stompin, slammed hat in ground, curse in name of god, and yell at netman. i m fine with it but beat the dog with the hat? come on. its just a fish for cryin out loud. maybe its his fish of lifetime, but come on the dog are our best buddies...

so this got me thinkin, when bring your dogs do you guys blame your dog when u lost the muskie at boatside?

matty,

Sounds like it was kind of funny at first then it got a little frustrating to watch for you..... For me, sad to hear since I lost both my dogs last year WAY too early in life and would trade 100 muskies to have the girls back in the boat with me.

Sounds like the old saying of there's no such thing as a bad dog, just bad dog owners. I loved taking them out with me, but I knew what I was doing and put the fun of being out and getting them out of the house first. If I was going all-out serious fishing, I left 'em at home. That said, they were well trained and never a bother. Sometimes I was glad to have an extra 150lbs of dogs to help weigh the bow down!

Fishing should be fun, the day I ever get that worked up over a lost fish regardless of why (usuallly my fault by the way!!) I hope someone comes over and takes my rod away from me..... Heck, I'd probably have had an ulcer already if that was the case!

Any luck for you on Flake?

I fish with my dogs all the time and would never blame them for anything. That's taking this a little to seriously, they just love being in the boat, and besides, they're not the one who lost the fish, i would be that moron.

I can understand your frustration watching this unfold, I can only hope the angler hasn't done it before and doesn't do it again....that's not right.

Cast a bulldawg upside his head and ask him how he likes it, tell him you just lost a fish and he was the closest thing to a dog around.

Funny story...

Couple years ago on 'tonka I went to adjust the front locator and naturally the dog came to see what I was doing. I gave her a good ear tussle and pat....only to look back and see my Suick being rolled over by a muskie.....waving her fins at me as she did it! She looked pretty solid too! I laughed.....Stupid ME!

I'll have to look and maybe scan it if I have to, but I have a pic of my lab sitting on the front triangle of the bow, looking intently as I was fishing. Fall, I'm in camo, and she's dialed in.... Pretty cool pic!

That guy's pretty dumb... he shouldnt be fishing at all if that means his dog's suffering from his blow ups...

Yeah Matty... it was fun hauling butt to Walfart because of the danged trolling motor... but at least we made it back to the lake for the rest of the night...

Sure felt good having that short fight... too bad it came off the hook...

Reminds me of my dad with our old dog Brandy in the boat. Dog bit at the fish and got hooked with the fish. Then trying to unhook the dog my dad got hooked, so the same lure had a 2lb northern, a 50lb dog, and a 200lb man. This was prior to digital cameras so we never got a pic, but it would have made a good one.

My other good dog story is when we at my uncles place. He wanted to give all the family the lake tour so we overloaded the pontoon. It was going along fine until the dog walked toward the front and it started to nosedive. So we blame the dog for nearly sinking the boat.

The dogs are spoiled though, we even gave them their own mattress on the floor to sleep on. We brought them to the lake last week and they sat on the van's seat and my brother sat on the floor in the back (we had removed the back seat to haul stuff up).

I would have thrown a fat spoon at the guys face (easier said than done) along with a few words.....you can throw a fit and act immature in front of your fishing buddy, but don't ever blame/hit a dog. Heck, In all honesty I'd hit a friend in the face before I ever hit my dog. Sorry for the rant, I just have no time in life for people who abuse/neglect animals. Although, the mental image of seeing a guy whack his buddy in the face over a lost fish is quite amusing/ridiculous. smile

    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
