Do you take your dog fishing?

Recommended Posts

I have a fox terrier and i take him fishing with us every now and then but it seems like he just wants to sleep while we are out haha. So i was just wondering if anyone took there dog with them and if they enjoy it.

I have a German Shepard / Lab Mix and I take him all the time when its just me (2 person boat)

he loves it - Although i think the fact he can see my lure and not my line makes him go psycho every cast he barks and howls once it hits the water .... he lays down

Worst part is getting the dog hair out of the carpet. Other than that he is the best co angler i could have .

I don't take mine all the time because my aussie mix loves getting in the water and my shi-su doesn't do well in the heat of the summer. I do take them when I do some bottom fishing with live bait since I can keep an eye on them but if I am trowing lures I rather not take them because my aussie will follow me in to the water or just jump in there herself.

Sometimes.  He has a pretty good roll cast and I'm learning a lot from him.

As much as I love having my dog around, I can't take her fishing with me any more.  She tries to bite whatever the heck comes up on the business end of my line.  She doesn't actually want to eat the fish, just bite it a few times to show it who's boss...stupid animal.

I took my lab fishing one time and he was doing good sitting on the front deck beside me just watching then it happend a 4lb bass exploded on my topwater frog. My dog went nuts barking and bouncing all over the boat. Soon as i got the fish in the boat he jumped on it i thought he was gonna lick it to death. I finally got the fish away from him and back in the lake and when the fish hit the water my dog did too. It took me a minute to get him back in the boat but when i did he went nuts all over again so i had to take him home.

My boxer, Molly, loves to go everywhere with me. On the boat she wears a dog PFD 8-). Boxers are poor swimmers :(. My carpeting is tan and she's fawn, so shed hair doesn't show up, and she sheds very little in a day anyway 8-).     Happy fishing.

I trained my pup to point using my fishing pole so, needless to say, she gets a little too excited when I've attempted to take her fishing.  She starts whining whenever she sees me grab my fishing rod.  I hope she grows out of it (maybe more repetition is required  ;)), but at the time being, it's probably best to leave her at home.

Don't leave home without him....If I do he crys til I get home and no one should put his best friend thru that ;) Every fish that comes in the boat gets an scale or two knocked off by Tiger (Tito) short for Tiger Tibid-O Parks. He's the "Rage Dog". Not sure who's the master of who.... ::)

Have a 65 lb pitbull..he has way to much energy to take fishing, even when I shore fish..dogs aren't allowed of leash, and definitly not allowed in the water, which is where he'd prefer to be...lol

And he hates having his picture taken.. ;D

I have 2 small dogs at home ( each about 10 lbs ).

Where I fish the gators are big so momma says no.

I would love to, but I've gotta keep momma happy. :)

When I fish at my in-laws pond I usually take our lab with us. She runs around the shore line and hops into the water every now and then. She has swam from shore out to where we are fishing in the boat (about a 2 acre pond) trying to get in. I just just shoo her away, labs are great swimmers.  When we pull the fish in she tries to bite them!

Well first off, I love dogs of all kinds. Big ones, little ones, pure breds, mutts, whatever.

However, not only do I never fish with people, because of all the distractions (especially with my AADD) but I think it would be even worse with a dog. Reason being, I think I could ignore my friends easier, than I could a dog ;-)

I don't own a dog of my own at the moment, but I am good buddies with my landlords dog..... who is watching over my left shoulder as I sit here and type this. He is a German Shepherd x Gold Lab mix, and he is a big old boy ! 105 lbs ! I think he's full grown, but barely. He's only 2 years old. (hey Btech, do you have a photo of yours ?) When I play fight with him, and he wraps those big teeth around my forearm, while growling and snarling, you can't help but think "Darn, it's a good thing he's just playing" ! I'd hate to be a burgular that runs into him ! ;-)

Actually, he has already cornered a burgular in our back yard, who was attempting to break into the neighbors house. The neighbor called the cops, and the attempting burgular was arrested ;-) How cool is that ?

It's kind of funny, as with everyone "who is supposed to be here, he is just a big baby" :-) He just knows when to "turn it on" !

Cool dog fishing pix - wish I had a fishing dog. I tried to take my cat out on the boat but he exhibited a strong negative reaction. It was a bear just getting him in his life jacket. Maybe if I had started taking him when he was a kitten it would have been better.
