What do you want mounted and what do you consider resonably priced?

I have a 16 in crappie, and one of my friends had a 28 in walleye done for $130, so I was hopeing for under 100.

boy that seems cheap to me. most of the time it seems to run 10-14 bucks an inch. Unless he is your cousin or a good college buddy.

Your going to have a tuff time trying to find somebody to do it for under $100. If you do find somebody I would definetly take a really good look at their work. The more you spend the better off you are(most of the time). I would say the average price for a 16in. crappie around St.Cloud would be about $150-175. I charge about $200 unless somebody brought in a few, then the price would be lower. You would be best off wrapping the slab in a wet towel (protecting the fins)and a plastic bag, freeze it and save up some extra money to have it mounted right. It will last a good year in the freezer. A 16in. crappie is a trophy and you'd be much better off spending a little extra money.

Somebody knows me?

I've always had the best luck in the water!!!!!!!

Clearwater has always been good, lately I've beeen going to mille lacs with varied success. I don't fish briggs in the winter but I was fishing julia during early ice before the crowds and did pretty good. Right now I'm trying to get things done so I can head up to red lake tomarrow (I hope). Then I'll be heading to LOW in late march for the end of my ice fishing season unless the ice holds.

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
