    Are CBD Dog Treats The New Wave Of Cannabis?

    Our puppy (well she is a 60 lb bird dog now) is a rescue and she has anxiety (to the point of constant, visible shaking) whenever we leave and whenever we take her in a vehicle. Our vet has prescribed her some kind of anti-anxiolytic but that medicine sort of makes her catatonic and a little too sedated. I was hoping that someone might know of some kind of tincture or CBD that might help with anxiety. Thanks all!!!

    So I caught this one with the same, poor frog.....this one was about 16 inches and I had to drag it in by hand with a big wad of weeds....they were biting today and there were about three other good blowups before I snagged this one... The southwest side of the pond is where I caught this one, or where the “point” of the pond is..

    Went out to Wilsonville pond again yesterday and threw a frog a bunch of times and not a single bite. A few times when my lure would hit the water, any nearby fish would get spooked and run...don't know. I have tried using a worm (Texas and Carolina rigged) but there are just way too many weeds to use these IMO.

    So the wife smoked all of it so I will try again at the same dispensary.

    Still no takers...I had one, nice blowup and about four other lame ones.... Attached is a pic of a portion of Wilsonville pond where I was fishing today....

    I am headed out to Wilsonville pond again to try my luck again with a frog......it is overcast today so maybe that will change the bite.

    Tried again today. When I first got there I got a nice blowup and after waiting the standard 2 seconds.....the fish was gone. I had a few more “bumps” (aka unenthusiastic blowups) but no takers again today.

    Still no luck fishing in the evenings before sundown at Wilsonville pond. I still get an occasional blow-up/bump but no takers. Also there are many times when the frog first hits the water after casting and it causes some scared reaction activity. I have noticed that there are places near the shoreline where the perch are nesting, so maybe that has affected the bass as well, I dunno.

    I have not had any more luck at Wilsonville pond and I have fished there almost every day since catching that one that I posted on. I still get “blow-ups” on my frog, but I haven’t been able to “seal the deal” since catching that one. My next devious plan is to catch some perch, then use them as live bait under a cork....

    Hey Popeye yeah they CAN be effective, it just depends on the circumstance. In the case of Wilsonville pond, it is so “choked” with weeds (I don’t know if it’s hydrilla or what) that a frog is about the ONLY lure that is “fishable”. Another thing about using frogs is that you sometimes have to discipline yourself to NOT immediately set the hook when they hit it....not always, but sometimes. Frogs are so much fun to catch bass with though, man! And with some practice, you can get a frog into some “scary” places and be confident that you won’t get hung-up!

    Hey also I wanted to share a modification to the frogs that I use that I really believe helps to get the bass to bite the “body” of the frog (where the hooks are) and not the tail - I simply cut about half of the rubber “legs” off. I have also seen people use a trailer hook to do the same thing but I have not tried that. I really believe this helps to get more hook-ups.....hope this helps!

    Oh and also this is a fifteen inch fish, not twelve....I had forgotten the taped length markers on my rod...not to brag or anything....:)

    Oh I forgot to tell how I caught it.....so when the fish blew up on the frog, I paused, set the hook then “SNAP!!!”—- my braided line broke and I said, “ oh fiddlesticks!”- but then I realized the line broke right at my reel and the fish had no where to go with all the weeds so I found my remaining line on the ground and pulled the fish in manually.. It was foolish of me to be using 10lb braid in this pond...I should have and will now use at least 20lb braid at a minimum.

    Hey I just caught this twelve incher out of Wilsonville pond ( it is just west of I-5 right on the Clackamas/Marion County line just south of where I-5 crosses the Willamette). In the picture you can see the frog still in its mouth, I must have had 20 blowups but only one taker..... The top water frog bite is crazy ON right now, mornings and evenings it seems like.
