Sounds like a nice fish!
My family has has good luck with Mid-America Taxidermy in Savage/Shakopee area
(on hwy. 13). I've seen their fish, deer, and fowl and its all been impressive.
Good luck.

Slotfish,
Thanks for the reply. You're the third person so far that's recomended MidAmerica. I've already called them and will probably use them soon unless I hear any better suggestions.
Thanks again for the reply !
This forum sure is great for questions like these!

If you use them, don't expect your mount back anytime within 6-8 months. They are very busy, but sometimes I think they take on more work than they can handle. I would expect probably 1 year lead time right now.

The best place to find these guys is to go to the sports shows and see the mounts they have on display, some really nice work at these shows!

So far the best taxidermy I've seen is from Walton's Wildlife Studio in Harris, MN (651)-674-2949. Dan does phenominal work, well worth the wait and extra drive! If you want plain old fish on a stick he's not the guy, but I have a 8# bass he did that you would think your looking at it picking up the bait underwater. I can't sing his praise enough!
He also has a sandwich shoppe with phenominal mounts well worth a look!

Can anybody suggest a good, reputable taxidermist in the metro area ?
I've never caught anything worth mounting before....(and with my luck, probably never will grin.gif )
My 14 year old just got back from Great Slave Lake and brought a 43" 21# Northern back as a souvenir.
Sounds like they had a GREAT trip......
Now I have to find someone to take it from my freezer to his wall...... wink.gif
I'd sure appreciate any recomendations !
If you can't post the info please email me @

Thanks in advance !

    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Hillary and whatever terminal illness she has did seem like a favorite fake news item for you, although I thought it was a close second besides that obama boner thing you really really wanted to see.

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.
