Looking for a good taxidermist for Crappies.

13 posts in this topic

Anyone have a reccommendation for a good taxidermist in the area? Specifically for a stringer mount of 5 nice Crappies? Thanks in advance.

Mount 'Em Taxidermy in Clearwater does a very good job. He does take a little longer so if you are looking to get them back right away I wouldn't use him. His phone number is 320 558-2419

I have to agree with fish about jims taxidermy. He has done a walleye, a wood duck and a buck for me. All turned out fantastic and I get compliments on the mounts all the time. A few on this site have seen my mounts and maybe if they see this post they will tell ya what they think. I also have a cousin who jim did a crappie and sunfish for.

Real nice work wink.gif

I've looked in the yellow pages and found Tim's Taxidermy and Tredwell Custom Taxidermy both in Maple Lake. Is either of these the "Jim" you are referring to? Thanks for all the help, The "Tim & Jim" show is a little confusing.

There's a guy in Coon Rapids who works out of his house and does an excellent crappie at a very competitive price. I have one crappie on my wall and will definitely go back to him next time. It's been a while but I think his name is Jack Hanson and he's listed in the phone book.

Warren Wehmas out of Big Lake is good too. He's got his own shop behind his house and is very helpful with options. Fish, birds, mammals, and antler mounts. The guy uses mostly word of mouth and doesn't advertise.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
