Good Crappie taxidermist?

12 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.

I have had great luck with knudson taxidermy in Waconia. He does a great job on his fish.

Don't go to the one in Dassel, I gave half the money last winter on a crappie and he never called. When I called month after month to his cell phone messages where full and he closed his shop in town. Now I here he is southern Minnesota with my crappie and 75 bucks, I wish I could find him.

lindylittlejim,

Was up on red this past Sun thru tuesday morning right after the snow storm with a similar report that you ended up with. We were told that we should have been up there last week. Just the way it works. I work with the Muskie man and his fishing was doing good until the wind switched.

Pretty much what WRD said. We were on the fish then a nasty west wind came up and even the walleyes stoped!! IT was fun!! Drilled alot of holes even brole one of my blades on the strikemaster and the other auger the blades went dull couldn't even drill a hole with it!! Tried for pike for a little while on the cribs no takers there, All in all we came home with a 1 gallon bag of fillets of fish

I also can speak for Ron Knudson. He does great work and at a reasonable price.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
