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)

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
