first real frostbite outing

Post by finsntins »

while i have been fishing winters for quite a few years now,i usually pick days that the roads are dry and its above freezing,but looking at the forecast that is showing winter might be settling in for a while,we figured we would get a trip in and get the boat back home.while this was nothing compared to what you frostbite champ.guys fish in,it was an experience for us,boat covered in snow,had to shovel the deck off,snow on the ground and temp.below freezing.we got about five hours of trolling in,kinda slow as we tried some different waters looking for more quality fish than quantity,we wound up only putting one good fish in the boat and boating around ten total.it was a good experience and we had fun.it was the new puppies first time on the boat and she did great.

Jason - Nice report but let's get real and talk dogs! I grew up with Springers, and my wife and I have had tri colored springers for the past 3 generations. Some have been great hunters, but all are boat/lap dogs. We have three at home presently, as Teak and Cedar are now aging (11 and 10 yo), and we have "adopted" our daughters dog Duke who just turned 3 on Friday. My daughter didn't want to give him up, but she while she is submarine deployed with the NAVY, we are adoptive parents at Camp Vermont and he's settled well with our other dogs. Where'd you get the pup? Your liver and white tri is a sweetheart! Off-line messaging is OK too, but I'm curious, and I'd love to talk Springers and learn more about good breeders. Seriously!

Jason, Our house right now is kid less and dog less but we know at some point we will want a pup I can train to upland hunt. Could you clue me in on any good breeders I can file for future?
