Gave the new pup a chance to run the banks and learn the ropes of being a fishing dog. It took him a bit to realize what I was doing, and what he was supposed to do. Like not to try and fetch the bobber, or jumping fish... But as more fish came to hand, he learned. By the end of the day, he watched patiently and definitely knows what drag ripping off the reel means(fish coming in...maybe) As for a fishing report, I got lucky, went to the right spot at the right time, In between storms. Sent a friend back 2 days later, and it was dismal.
