Recommended Posts

CrappiesNeyes

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.

      Thanks for the reply Rick... One more hour to check off something from my only get to do it once bucket list doesn’t sound bad at all. If it were you is that where you would go?
    • leech~~
      Wow, that was low!   But, from someone so use to bending over-well......
    • Rick
      Check out the South Central Forum, or MN Metro Forum and ask there as well as the SE MN- Rochester Forum. You may get more answers there as well.   If you could extend to three hours away Mille Lacs Lake could for sure accomodate what you are looking for.

      Hello...  I am coming down to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester from Homer, Alaska on February 11-20 and would like some advice. On the afternoon of Friday the 16th  through the evening of Sunday the 18th I have the time to go fishing. I would like to go after some pike and walleye. I would like to stay in a heated shack during my time on the ice. Also some rental gear, a radio and bait might be nice. Any advice on who rents shacks within a 2+ hour drive of Rochester with good size fish? I am looking more for decent size than numbers.  Thanks JFaber

      OK i'm not leech but really? 14"er.. knowing your height Royce you'll probably need a stepladder to start out drilling Sorry bud I had to do it!!
    • IceHawk
      That's a pretty one! Nice fish Rick 
    • eyeguy 54
      got a 14 inch extension on the way to try out next week. should be nice not bending over so far.   no crazy comments leech!  LOL

      I made it out this weekend.  Tiny crappies, but one nice size perch.  I used both wax worms and minnows.
    • nofishfisherman
      Used mine for the first time this weekend and I don't think I've ever used a better cutting auger.  Even my wife wanted to take a turn after seeing me use it and she's never used an auger of any type before.  We had maybe 18" of ice (just a guess, didn't measure it ) and I cleared the shavings a couple times with just a quick pull up at it worked slick.
