North Metro Taxidermist Needed

8 posts in this topic

Before anybody gets on me about this I will lay out what happened. I was on a metro lake yesterday and we were sitting on the dock and saw this huge crappie swimming around, it looked like it was having trouble swimming around, we could see there was a ding in the side of the crappie, which we assume was from a prop. A little while later the crappie was being washed up tword shore, so I went in and got it. It had passed on at that point but was still "fresh". Its a large 14" crappie and its thick. I want to mount this fish not to call my own, but to honor this fish for makinging it to that size in a metro lake. Plus it will look good in my office. I have never had a fish mounted but have called around for some prices this morning, but wanted to know if anybody can recommed a place in the north metro area.

Thanks for your help.

I went with the suggestion from Chris. Dropped the fish off the other night. The displays that he has of other crappies are great. Don't have mine back yet obviously, but if it looks anything like the displays it going to be great.

I would recommend Dwight at Wilderness Taxidermy in Maple Grove. He has done 2 bear skin rugs, Wood Duck, Northern, Salmon, and walleye for me. Have been happy with all of the mounts.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
