fishing dog

Are there boaters here take their dog fishing? I have been looking to get a pup and I'm trying figure out what breed would make a good boat dog. Any suggestions?

Re: My one and only reply Bill Siemantel*NM*

i don't know about you guys but i don't think "imitation is a sincere form of flattery" when someone takes your bait and scans it. would you be flattered if you were to study hard for an exam only to have the person next to you copying your answers?
