Game Fair Dock Jump

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if anyone knows the furthest distance for the dock jump today (Friday). When I left today... I am proud to say... my dog "Sam" was the longest jump of 22 feet and I am wondering how long that lasted? I know there are many dogs that jump further, but I was still pretty proud! (last year he jumped only 14 feet) We were invited to the finals today, but we were not going to stay for them. So if anyone knows what the results were, I would appreciate knowing the results.
Thanks,
"hooks"

I think the record for there as well as the country is 24 ft.But not exactly sure.
I know it is over 23 ft as there was a dog there last year that was seen shortly after the fair on ESPN jumping in competition at 23 feet +
The record holder is a small black lab from Minnesota.Can't seem to remember all the details though.

I just finished reading a story about Minnesota's own "Little Morgan" in this week's Outdoor News. He has the record of 26 feet, 6 inches, they say that no other dog has broken 24 feet! The article is an interesting read, "Little Morgan" has even been nominated for an ESPY.

I think I may be the proud owner of an undiscovered champion.....Luci loves to launch off the dock. Do they measure from exactly where the dock starts??

I just read that article this morning myself. Pretty impressive jumper there!
Does anyone know the longest jump for yesterday (Friday)?

I met Benny there and we saw a lab go 26' on Sunday later in the afternoon. Lots of dogs and people. Most were nice but also most do not mind their own dogs noses so the occasional flare up of growls and teeth are heard.

A good time. I managed 17' with my Chessie. She slipped on her last try or I saw the big 20 comming. Maybe another time. Way to go on the 23'.

    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me. 
    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
    • Like others have said, Impulse mayflies on a 3 or 4mm tungsten jig is my go-to for panfish. If you are targeting deeper crappies or big fish only give the Lindy frosted spoons a try, 1/16 works quite well tipped with a minnow head or waxies.
