WALLEYE REPLICAS

Recommended Posts

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY PICTURES OF A WALLEYE THAT THEY HAVE HAD DONE. I GUESS THAT SOME OF THEM THAT I HAVE SEEN I THOUGHT LOOKED A LITTLE "CARTOON LIKE". I HAVE ONE FOR SURE I WOULD LIKE TO FIBERGLASS BUT I WAS INTERESTED IN SEEING SOME PICTURES AND WHO DID THE REPRO FOR YOU.

GOOD IDEA SETTERGUY!

THANKS!

I was pretty happy with my replica but when I got it, it looked like a 200# Blue Marlin!!! tongue.giftongue.gif,

Stinky Walleyes, you going to hang that bottom feeder over your crapper? That way you can see which one looks better!! Don't be afraid to ask the taxidermist to put a few chunks of corn or peanuts on your Eye also!

Your going to want to research this one, I have seen 9 bad one's for every good one, it boils down to how good the paint job is.

Good Luck!

I would say and seen his work on replicas that TED PILGRIM in park rapids does an excellent job on reps or the real thing. I picked up my deer mount late this summer and there was a walleye on his table and i thought it was the real macoy but it was a replica. If you want it done right i would suggest him.

When I had my pike done a few years back it was $10.00 per inch, went through a local taxidermist who I believe went through fibertech. I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out.

radke22-the coldwater mounts a very impressive(the trout). The warmwater fish (pike, walleye, bass, etc.) look a little "fake" in my opinion.

Cool stuff to look at though.

I believe Fibertech has it posted on the order page of the HSOforum they charge $12.50 an inch. Expected delivery time of 5-6 weeks

Look them up at

I have a walleye I am think about getting done but that is they great thing about a replica. I don't have to do it right now if I want to wait and do it 3 years from now I still can.

I would second those that suggested Mike @ Fibertech... He did a 'ski for me and a sunnie for my oldest daughter. Both look awesome. Had them both done in under a month. $12.00/inch last year. Not sure what he charges now.. If I can figure out how to post pics here, I will do so in next few days or so. 8-Ball.

Watch your mouth Outdoornut! You know walleyes are #1. You actually hold your rod in your hand most of the time while fishing them unlike your trolling on the big lake. wink.gif

Artistic Anglers in Duluth is excellent! Best replicas I have ever seen. Our very own Outdoorran works there and does great work.

I've seen some of Artistic Anglers work as well...VERY, VERY NICE!!! Maybe outdoor ran could post a few pics. That would be cool to see some comparisons.

I'd love to see a walleye mount from artistic anglers too if anyone has a pic of one. I've heard tons of good about them, but don't think I've ever seen one from them.

This is a 32" 14 lb. walleye with a 21" girth. This is the only mold Artistic Anglers has in a 32" walleye. He has many molds of 28-30" walleyes. My son and I think his replica looks great. Hope this helps. My son paid $10 an inch if ordered at the Mpls sports show. It took 9 months to get it back, since he had a lot of orders at the show.

Artistic Anglers is always adding new molds to its inventory. There is some really nice walleye molds in the 30"-34" range. Heres a few pics.

Thanks Outdoor for posting the pics.

Artistic Anglers repos look amazing. I really like the walleye in the second pic. Is there anyone out there that could please inlarge those pics so we can see the awesome detail a little more? Thanks again.
