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?

    • If you can zoom in it's leaning up against my spear house, the red thing.
    • Only if Leech promises to keep his shirt on!
    • i've built/made about 8 of them.  took a piece of mild steel flat bar formed the chisled head by grinding the angle. had it hardened then took 1 1/2 or 2 inch pipe. cut out a slot for the flat bar fit it, welded it up. then took a plumbing end cap, steel, welded that to the pipe, then took a big washer, ground it to fit the end cap, welded it to end cap, then tied a rope to it.
    • Go to Leech's house, put on your apron and have an "artisan" bread baking party then. 😁
    • This white stuff is not bread!  😁
    • mine is about the same and it works!!!
    • Real decision is how much space is needed. Frabill is 6'6"x 6'6", Shappell is 7'6"x 7'6", Eskimo 949i ($289 Amazon & L&M free ship) is 8' x 8'. Find a spot in your home to tape off each hub size than cut 6ea paper circles to hole size and place on floor 3 people fishing. Mark door area on tape put all the gear the 3 people will use fishing, chairs, heater, rod case, coolers, minnow bucket tackle boxes coats  etc and place inside marked floor. You will soon answer the question of which one to buy. 
    • Depending how big you make it, I think the t handle will be awkward, prone to catching on stuff like your jacket, and it's unlikely to be held in a way that makes it useful.     I would put a hole or something for a wrist strap.  And if I was trying to be fancy I would give the upper part a coat of some gritty plasti-dip or a good wrap of hockey tape.
    • I agree Dave. But I hunt and fish and if I looked at it as a cost factor to gain!  Every dang one on this forum site knows the answer to that question! 😉   I just like to try stuff. One time I tapped the Maple trees in my back yard after spending a few bucks on taps and such. I made a block of maple sugar because I didn't know what the H I was doing, but it was Fun anyway!  🙂   Another time I made dried Sage smoke smudges like the Indians make, because some hippy dude at a old time Trapper rendezvous told me they help keep the misquotes away with out using spray. When our friends at the campground came over for a fire they asked if we were smoking Pot over here? 😅 This an't half of it but it's fun to try things. Makes life more interesting.
