Teak is owned and handled by Blake Douglas and he is a 15 week old male vizsla. This picture was taken in Milner, Ga while working the dogs. This is Teaks first day introduced to live quail and he is holding point on a planted bird. The proper introduction of dogs to birds is essential in training a good gun dog.

Two Very Nice Keeper Bass
I was fishing with friends and the 10 pounder, on the right, hit on a Heddon Crazy Crawler. The 9.5 pounder hit on a buzz bait shortly thereafter. Both of these exceptional Tiger Bass were taken on topwater baits from Hampton Lake in South Carolina on a cloudy, overcast day in March, 2012 during the spawning period. Both of these beautiful fish were released unharmed. -guideman77

My family has fished this small central Indiana river for decades and we've never heard of anyone catching a muskie. Caught the fish on spinning tackle with a Rebel crawdad crankbait. -Tlancaster1
Hayden's First Bass
We met our friend Roy for some evening fishing. I cast out and handed the pole to Hayden telling him to real it in and that he might catch a fish while I set up another pole. The little stud hooked this lunker all by himself, setting the hook and fighting it all the way to the bank! -fisherman25
Best Fight of my Life

I have been fishing since I was 4 years old and it's my favorite thing to do in life. I am now 23- and can say that this mission has been accomplished- Catching a bass that I could barely hold up in a picture. I hope you enjoy it (: -clkbmx
