My fishing partner is usually my yellow lab/great pyrennes mix. He's great company and now that he's 10 he's not too rambunctious for the boat. We camp out together and although he's a good swimmer I bought him a doggie float vest last year now that he's older. If I could just teach him to "point" at where the fish are. :) Ed

I fish with my choco lab. I've had her in the boat since she was 4 months old. She's only pissed in the boat twice. :mad:

She gets excited when someone grabs the net, so she knows for sure what it's all about.

I tried taking our dog with me a few times. He's a little cocker spaniel mix, very hyper and barks at everyone and everything, then he tried jumping off the pier so that was it for me.

Koni-Maybe you should tie a treble hook to him, throw him out there, and fish for the really big cats. ;D Ed

I started taking my 7mo old cattle dog puppy fishing, and she has much to learn. So far she's learned that walking on thin ice can make for a chilling experience; and a few weeks ago she learned that no, you can't step out of a moving boat to walk on water to fetch the pretty duck... and yes, a twenty two pound puppy does fit in a fish landing net.

I get a kick in watching her trying t deal with life's little challenges. With time and patience, she'll get the hang of it.

Take a dog fishing!

I sometimes fish w/ my german shepard, although for the 1st ten or so casts, she thinks she should be retrieving the lure. She goes nuts (she loves the water). In the off season I'll let her swim, & I still catch. Her other problem is she is furious when other dogs walk by off leash. She's real friendly, but can sound mean. We have a black lab, but I don't take her as often. She craps all over when I take her. It's like she saves it up. It's a pain stopping (fishing) every 5 minutes to clean up. I'm working on them both though. I love taking them to red feathers camping.

On occasion, i will take my wife's Shi*-Poo, out on the boat. She is an older dog and pretty calm. She does well if it is just her and me. She will lay at my feet just like at home. My wife likes to take her with us when my wife goes out withme. There just is not enough room in a 14 foot boat for all my rods, tackle and other necessities. Let alone my wife's luxuries. (reclining lawn chair, umbrella, makeup bag, suitcases oops I mean purse, 4 kinds of sunscreen etc.) and a dog.
