Cyberfish....Incredible Talent!!!

Recommended Posts

I had to the chance to see the artwork that Cyberfish drew on the side of his fish traps. Let me tell you, some very nice and talented artwork. Check out these pics...

And might I add, all of this was drawn by hand with a permanent marker! Very impressive! Cyberfish said that he might be interested in decorating other portables if someone is interested as well.

I just had to show these pictures and share the story. Enjoy!


Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

Speaking as someone who can not draw a stright line, that is very impressive art work. I'll keep an eye out for Cyber Fish on the ice.

KF, artwork on a harley, yeah that would be cool, I do catfish. I don't know what kind of paint one would use to do it though. I use to have an old toyota and I used sign paint to paint fish all over it, it was the fishmobile smile.gif it looked pretty good

Cyberfish,

It was great meeting you today and checking out your artwork...hopefully your love for drawing and painting will start helping with the bills. I know doing what you love makes everyday that much more enjoyable! As soon as I get some Road King houses for the guide service I plan to have you work your magic on them.

Take care and have a safe trip to Florida

Wow!! I wish I had half your talent. Art and music....two things I'm passionate about, but can't draw or carry a note, oh well.
Have you thought about submitting a sketch for the trout stamp competition every year?
I would like to see more of your work, maybe host some pics for us?

Cyberfish, you should talk to some of the manufactures or dealers of shacks on wheels. If you could do that with an airbrush you could find work in lots of different places. Harley's were mentioned custom paint is big $$'s. Do you do other wildlife? Maybe boat dealers would be another place to check into, or leroys custom painting, I'm sure there always looking for talent.

I've seen it out on the ice myself. But besides that, I've noticed in the 3 times I've fished with Cyberfish that he's even better at catching fish! Forgot how cool those drawings were though.. Man, now I wish I had a portable just so I could have drawings! smile.gif

Here's the beautiful thing. Due to Cyberfish's generosity, my buddy and I were able to fish in one of those shelters.

We didn't know nuthin'

We caught many fish.

Was it the art?

How about some fabulous artwork on the inside for me next time?

Thanks again Cyberfish; have fun in Florida.

SERIOUSLY! It was THIS big!

Cyberfish you certainly have talent, well done!

Stay with it! I could easily see a good career in customization in your future. Custom work on boats, RV's, vehicles, you name it. Talent has legs, and word of mouth is a powerfully tool to an artist.

Now for the really big question?

Can you do catfish?

Cyberfish,

That's awesome!

When are you opening your ice house custom painting business? That would make even my vintage Fish Trap (circa 1989) enviable.

Very cool!

Matt says "you sure caught a lot of fish that day".

I say Cyb is likely to outfish anyone he's with on any given day. I've seen it happen time and again.

Those of us who have fished with him quite a bit beleive that his touch with a jigging rod is very closely related to his touch with a sketching pencil.

Hey CYB
Start practicing drawings of a WALRUS
(preferrably one with a handlebar mustache, wearing a life jacket and sliding across the ice).
I think I need one on the back of my fishtrap Voyager.

Excellent!
Cyberfish, you rock!
Speaking of.... how is Dec 29 & 30th for jammin & fishin here in Owatonna (sleep-over)? I have invited "Buzz" and Elliot may come from Duluth too. Have you heard Elliot's tunes yet?

Cyberfish, I have long been looking for a Catch-N Tackle staff cartoonist.
You surely fit that bill!
So, hows about lets discuss that?

    • A good bottle of bourbon or case of beer might make a difference.....
    • Great feedback.  I guess I will go with the single stage.  Just wish I had a solution for keeping the plow driver from pushing our entire culdesac's snow onto my lawn.
    • I have a Gen1 Helix 5 and love it on the ice, but also use it on my kayak. If I were to do it over again I would have got the 7" or bigger. Its not so much an issue on the ice but DI/SI is hard  to fully utilize on a 5" screen.
    • I always use 6lb mono for jigging rods and And 8lb mono on deadsticks. No leaders for me I’ve debated it but it doesn’t really seem to make a difference if you have one or not. 
    • My thinking is the grease would make up for the gap, but wasn't sure if it'll still have too much play. Yet, don't want it too tight where it gets stuck.
    • I think the tube is DOM 1/2" thick. Was afraid 1/4" too thin and cannot find any other tube that would fit another solid rod inside. Don't want to get something I have to get machined $$$... At least with arm I can pull out and have another made if not good. Not sure how to make the grooves with hand tools?
    • I live in the burbs  on a cul-de-sac and the plow always leaves a huge pile at the end of my driveway. I bought a single stage Toro, and while I don't have a 2-stage to compare it against, I would definitely buy a single stage again. It's plenty powerful enough to handle the deepest, heaviest snow that accumulates on the driveway. When it comes to the pile at the end of the driveway, you just have to work your way though it by backing out and pushing into it again. Of course, if you're out of town or something and the pile at the end of the driveway freezes you might need to get out a shovel. But for most snowfalls I can clean the driveway in a matter of minutes - you almost have to run behind the thing to keep up with it.
    • Not a fan of leaders, far fewer bites with them on.   I typically run 4 or 6 lb test.  I do run 8 lb in water less than 8-10 ft.  I do this because thr fight is usually off to the sides of the hole, and the line contacts the ice edge at sharper angles.    
    • Just ordered the 16 piece jig kit yesterday. I am excited to get them and get out on the ice as soon as it is safe!
    • Hey,   What lb test line should I be using for Walleyes?  I've been using 4 lb but that seems a little light and I don't want to lose the big one, but don't want to get too heavy either.  Also, what's your input on using a leader?  I haven't but just wondering if I am missing something.
