Being that you are duckguy I am assuming you want some waterfowl mounted? I had a guy out of merrifield mount some ducks for me and they were very reasonable and the work was pretty good. I wouldn't say they were perfect but rather nice. He charged less than 200 dollars.

I'm sorry, I forgot to clarify it is actually a northern pike. Do you know if he is any good at fish.

The only guy in the world I would trust anything with (no offense to anyone else) is a guy in Park Rapids. Pilgrim Taxidermy. Ted is his name. Takes awhile to get your stuff back but he is very very good.

Bruce at Wild North Taxidermy on 371 across from round lake. One of the best I have seen and is also great at whitetails. He is a great great guy.

I'll second Bruce @ Wild North. He did a deer and walleye for me and both were excellent and reasonable with the going rate. It did take a while but worth the wait. He is right across the highway from Round Lake.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
