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.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      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
