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.

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
