Want to say my last one was in the 220 range. Have all my work done in the Spicer area. Hate to guess what quality work would run here in the metro. Obviously, don't let price alone dictate who does your work. Birds will keep a long time in the freezer until you have the $ for quality work that you will enjoy looking at for years.

Get out of the metro and the prices will drop significantly...and sometimes the quality will go up to! Check around for prices and quality. I have had some impressive mounts completed for 100 bucks believe it or not! Good luck!

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.
