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)

      recommendation for first timers to northern Minnesota?  we need decent lodging, boat or sitontop kayak, smallmouth is our favorite but we will fish for anything that will bite artificial.  thanks in advance for any help.

      My Alaska trip fell through, so I'm thinking having never been to Minnesota that should be my destination. thinking a week in august. Probably start International Falls or Duluth. We need a resort with sit on top kayaks or aluminum boats, comfortable lodging without being plush and not ripping our heads off pricewise.  We will target Smallmouth, but if it will hit a lure I will fish for it. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

      Went out of Stoney Point sunday morning.  FYI Watch for deer almost smoked a few on the 20 mph section coming back into the access!  There is an ice heave forming off of the rocks going straight north.  If you want to fish Paris Trench people were crossing instantly using boards.  We weren't gutsy/brave/stupid enough to cross there since we were pulling a trailer behind a four wheeler and had 3 of us with all our gear.  The ice was sketchy from access to point at the point the ice heave goes a little further away from shore and it allows you some room to avoid the point's tip.  There is open water immediately around the point tip but ice looks great if you follow the tracks and avoid huging the tip.  We couldn't find a place to cross the ice heave to get to Paris Trench so we were going to try a few spots further north since we could see a few groups set up north a ways.  About 5.5 miles north of the access the ice heave quits and you can cross it without any worries.  Since we could cross the GPS spot we wanted to fish was only 2.5 miles away and we fished there.  Out in the middle we had 26-28" of ice and barely made it through.  While fishing a plane landed on the lake and a 1/2 ton extended cab pickup came from the NE some where, it was too foggy misty to see where and we didn't see him leave.  Coming back from Stoney Point's Tip to the access was very sketchy.  Made me nervous since there was a lot of slush and water but ice held us up.  If you plan on going out next weekend you may need to find a different access, or atleast I would!  Talked to a guy who came in behind us, they crossed the ice heave at the access using boards how they did and they said it was very slow and only got two.
