I have seen pictures of some European head mounts where the skull has been camo dipped. the cost was around $75. I think some of them looked pretty cool, something diferent.

not sure if we can name companies on here but go to google and search for: mount "custom dipped" and it will be the first one that comes up. I have seen it other places just don't remeber where. It sounds like they can do any camo pattern on it.

I do my own, I boil it for a while then pick everything off. Then I use some bleech to make it whiter. Kinda fun.

If you look at the forum policy link at the top of this page one can see all the rules for posting such things as contact info.

Many stores sell the kits with the peroxide and other needed material to do this yourself.

It's easy to do yourself, if you have the stomach...It isn't really that bad but it can stink a little. ooo.gif

I use peroxide instead of bleach as bleach can harm the skull, making it chalky. Done about 10-12 in the past years.

There is a woman named Storm Amacker in Saint Paul who does a very professional job with this. I believe her business provides skeletons to medical schools and other scientific programs who study anatomy. She has done 3 of my bucks and I have been very satisfied. It takes a full year.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.
