Did you know you can mount a muskie without killing it?

The studio of Lax Reproductions is walled with trophy fish, mostly muskies, that are still swimming in the lakes where they were caught.

While they appear as natural as any traditional piece of taxidermy — scales, eyes, teeth like X-Acto knives — the mounts aren’t the actual fish but plastic replicas, based on measurements and photographs taken during the few adrenaline-injected minutes spent with a fish of a lifetime. The fish was released; months later, the replica was completed.

This is the norm today in muskie fishing, a realm of strict possession limits (54 inches is the statewide minimum keeper size in Minnesota) and a pervasive culture of catch-and-release intended to protect the larger but less-common cousins of northern pike. The result is a time-consuming, often pricey passion where the goal is not a fish fry, but the thrill of a rod-and-reel battle with an acrobatic, 50-pound torpedo which they will — following high-fives, measurements and photos — promptly release back into the water whence it came.

With the approach of fall — trophy muskie season — anglers casting big lures for big fish will be heading out on lakes from the metro to northwest Ontario knowing that if they want a keepsake muskellunge, they’ll have to commission someone to make a replica.

In Alabama, fishing represents a substantial impact on the state economy. Hundreds of millions of dollars are represented and about 20,000 people list fishing as their source of livelihood. However, most people consider it as a form of relaxation and a family activity.

In the book titled The Incomplete Psychology of Everyday Fishing psychologist Paul G. Quinnett dedicated an entire chapter about fishing as a source to relieve stress.

Anytime to interact with your children is time worth investing. Fishing is a way to connect. All children can experience the excitement and adventure of fishing. You will always remember the very first time you caught a fish, and the parent or guardian who showed you how to catch it. You gain enjoyable time outdoors and learning experiences from fishing which makes it a great family activity.

Alabama promotes its lakes and open banks as places best for fishing. You don’t need a boat. Stop in a local tackle store and ask for help if you don’t know which tackle to choose.. You will be on your way to enjoying the fun of fishing and understanding why its the best family activity you could enjoy. You’ll be hooked.

Rough Weather Tennis Ball Release Ruler Tip

Based on early user feedback and our own field testing, we have found a great solution for keeping the Release Ruler steady in rough windy weather.  A tennis ball attached to the end of the Release Ruler via a snap swivel works amazingly well. Using a larger size snap swivel with a small section of mono and a bead inserted into the tennis ball is very effective. Carefully cut a 1/2 section of the tennis ball and insert a bead crimped to your mono (we used #300 and a small bead so the mono will not pull back thru the cut) and attach a snap swivel to the mono as pictured. Your final step is to squeeze the tennis ball closing the cut and apply super glue.
