Friday was a great day for my first ever go at bar fishing. Met an oldtimer who was more than happy to share some advice and chatted with a few other really nice people. Catch report for the day, no springs, no trout, just 1 Golden Retriever!!! That's right. My rod was in the holder, I just finished tying up a fresh chunk of row and was putting the rest back in the cooler. A dog suddenly bolted out onto the beach, came directly towards my setup, and started sniffing my bait! All the yelling and screaming from the owner proved to be futile and before I could get to my rod the dog had the roe and hook in its mouth. It chewed through my line and took off.

The dog seemed to be ok (didn't have a chance to get a measurement, haha) and I had to explain to the owner that the sign that says dogs must be leashed is there for a good reason.

Definitely a memorable experience for my first day out.

Ditto's grumpy made me remember a a trip on the vedder when a seagull swooped down and scooped my buddies roe while he was hav'in a squirt, I don't know which was funnier watchin him try to zip up while this bird is takin off with his riggin or the suprise on the bird when it realized it was'nt just a nice little morsel to snack on

Golden Retrievers are the canine world's version of Dumb Blondes..
A friend had one and it was dumber than a box of rocks!!!!
I would have to agree with abby on this one. I have a retriever, she is 3 years old and I call her meathead. They do listen to commands and are intelligent but thier lack of maturity it was makes them so dumb.

What do you mean lack of maturity.....? They just never want to grow up.

I've been there and seen people constantly throwing sticks for thier dogs. The junk yard pile

of old car parts is slowly being cleared out so there is a little more room for all.

i too have a golden that is 3 years old that does have good and bad sides to her. i think because the breed is so freindly they are looked at as being a trouble dog or as abby puts it " dump blondes" these dogs are very excited to be around people and sometimes act like teenagers to gain more attention from everyone around them, i have been told that some do not grow out of this untill they are 3-5 years old. these dogs infact are very intelligent and listen to commands very well with training just like any other breed.
