Hey guys..one of the kids in my neighborhood caught a nice northern that is going to go on the wall. His folks asked me about good taxidermists in the area, I know of some really good bird/deer one's, but not so much fish. Any one have any recommendations? It won't be a replica mount.

Also, do you know what they typically will charge per inch for fish?

Thanks!!

Sidecar panfish guy is doing taxidermy now. I think his name is Troy Pike and I think he lives in Byron. Just a thought...

I just got a pheasant back from a guy named Bill Archer over by Mantorville. It was my son's first pheasant. He does lots of deer and was doing a bobcat when I was there. I'm not sure how many fish he does. He would be in the Kasson-Mantorville phone book. I thought his price was right in the ball park of the rest of the guys. Also worth a visit to his place as he raises trophy bucks for hunting and breeding.

I would trongly recommend Tom's Taxidermy in Clarksgrove. Yes a bit of a drive, but well worth it. Champion taxidermist and competition Judge.

Nothing, but top notch.

      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.

      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.

      Pulled my house a couple of days ago, but there are still a few fish biting at some spots. Very slow for me! Good roads out there yet as we plowed them after the last snow. Cliff

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??
