I have seen people talk about replicas on this cite many times, I have tried to do the research for replicas, from my research it appears replicas are about 2-3 times more expensive and you really have to have a quality artist do the molding process and definitely the paint job. Very easy to spend $700.00 - $800.00 and be really really disappointed. Those are prices for 22-23 inch fish if you are talking walleye or pike now your really talking money, as they are much bigger. But maybe I found over priced guys, I know bass pro shops sells specific species in mass production that are about equally priced, personal preference I guess. If any one knows of local talent that I could see some of there work on a replica and a round about price, per inch or fish, I would be appreciative.
