Replica ?

5 posts in this topic

Have been thinking of having a replica made of a smallmouth I CPR'd on Mille Lacs, but have been having trouble finding a website (that works) for any of the replica makers. The ones that I have found didn't look very good (just my opinion). I was @ the Cabela's in Rogers a few days ago and noticed they had some in a display case that looked very good, but the kid working there didn't know where they got them. Does anybody know where they (Cabelas) got there replicas, or have any other suggestions on where to look?

The replicas at the Rogers cabelas on the wall we made at Artistic Anglers in Duluth. My boss dosn't have a web site confused.gif You would have to call for info. I can't give you the number here but if you e-mail northlander he can give it to ya.

I have no idea where the funny looking ones in the case up front came from.

I will second Matt at Artistic Anglers. He is fantastic. He has done 4 for me and the only thing stopping him from doing more is the fact that I havent caught a worthy fish yet....I have the # if you need it.

I would recomend Artistic Anglers 100%. I had a walleye done by them and its just like the one I caught not some cookie cutter replica like so many I have seen. If you like I have the contact info.

Thanks for the advice guys. I had picked up a card from Artistic Anglers at the sport show a couple of years ago, but lost the brochure with pictures and couldn't remember how they're replicas looked. I'll be getting in contact with them soon (hopefully pick up a bigger fish this weekend first grin.gif)

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
