Does anyone know of a good taxidermist, that has reasonable rates around Elk River area? Will travel a little to get a good job on a northern.

I have a relative of mine in Coon Rapids that does fantastic work. I have a 40" Pike that he did on my wall along with a bunch of other stuff as well. I can get you photos of my pike if you'd like to see some of his work.

E-mail me if you wish.

Sorry, no one specific I can refer you to,but put up a post over in the Annandale-Buffalo-Big Lake forum,too.Someone there probably has a referral for that area being you're close to Big Lake, and Monticello.

North County Taxidermy in Coon Rapids does a great job. I have had a largemouth bass, and a walleye done by the guy, and my Mom currently has a northern there getting done that is suppose to be done any day now. Nice guy to work with, and he has a lot of work displayed at Sportsman's Warehouse in Coon Rapids as well. Email me with any questions you might have.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
