Fisher mount

11 posts in this topic

Now that all I need is for a fisher to poke his nose in one of my traps, what do I do with one? I'm leaning towards a rug if I get a nice one, probably sell the hide if it isn't. Anyone seen a fisher rug? How'd it look? Any other ideas? Probably not a full mount. Later.

i have seen fisher rugs and they are great along with mounts of fishers but when i get my first fisher it will be a rug. Hope you get one. I am going to be trapping for them again this year and cant wait. Got my fingers crossed i get a bobcat to boot.

Sounds like one vote for a rug - I'm leaning that way as I already have a nice yote rug. I'd like a bobcat also, and I have a tag for one this year grin.gif Also on the list is a red fox, grey fox, and then a bear. Eventually a wolf and mountain lion. I must have a fur fetish wink.gif

Cooter, a friend of mine who is a taxidermist mounted his fisher jumping over a deer shed antler. Wow, it looks good. He even won a award with it at a show. I'll try to get a pic for ya.

Sounds cool, can't wait to see the pic. Have any idea what a full mount would cost? Ballpark.

Well I'm all ready to trap this weekend! The one and only thing I know for sure is that I'm deathly afraid of #220 conibears smirk.gif Will report on Mon - hopefully without any stories of Cooter's forearm sandwiched in a fisher trap shocked.gif

I can't seem to kill a deer this year so I'm hoping the fisher trapping will go a bit smoother.

I love fur rugs. I don't have a fisher, but I have a bear and a racoon and a grey fox. The fisher would be great, I say go for it!

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
