    Where does the German Shepherd Dog go?
    What kind of fish does it catch?

    I PTS my old American Bulldog as he was barely moving anymore and in pain last year and still did not forget him so no other dog for a while.

    I am a trout and smallmouth bass angler using spinning, casting and fly gear.

    I already own a DIY-modded Pelican Apex 100 (10')

    and an Elie Gulf 120XE Angler (12')

    And I catched a few nice smallmouth last year:

    I feel your pain and understand you completely! It's hard letting go of a great friend.

    Sorry about your dog. They are best friends.

    Nice boats. They look easy to lift up to the roof. I'm a salmon slayer.

    The rainbows were far from monsters but it was my very first time on the Apex and this is the small river I volunteer for, as their webmaster. This river had frustrated me so many times that these trouts were trophies to me ;)

    I started smallmouth bass fishing last year so I'm a newbie but gosh this is addictive.

    I'm often wondering which end of the rod the real fish is ! ;)

    The Elie isn't that easy because of it's nylon webbed handles. Solid handles would make it WAY easier.

    I can carry the 10-footer single hand as it weight only 40 pounds.

    There's an old joke something like "Fishing gear: A worm at one end and an idiot at the other." :happy175:

    There's a reason it isn't called "catching".

    Just saw a Fenwick Elitech Bass at the store yesterday, right on the action I'd like...

    I need to get to that store next week to get my trout rod so this is dangerous
