Images of fish

8 posts in this topic

Awhile back there were posts about printing images of fish on tissue paper, then adhereing them to a lure body. I backtracked about 8 months and did not see it. What I am after is a website where i can get the pictures from... thanks, the Finn

Try google's Image Search. Use words like "Fish ID" or the specific type of fish you're interested in. Once you start to find them, you'll probably find some with the Latin names. Use them to do another search and you should find some more.

Some of the various state DNR websites have ID pictures, too. Ohio does, for one.

Once you get some lures made with the photos, please remember to show us.

After I went to bed last night I remembered about the Google search and images. Michigan's DNR sight has some too. The whitefish is what I am after. Used some bass, walleye and perch last summer. That was on the old computer and I believe that is where my images went. I have a fair digital camera, but am still computer illiterate. I will have to learn how to show the pict's on this site. Thanks for the help,..again. Bruce

There are lots of sources but keep in mind they are nearly all copyrighted. It's ok to use them for yourself but if you intend to sell them you must have permission from the owner.

I put it in my "favorites" when it was posted ealier last year. I use it often for a reference when painting.

P.S. How's it been going guys? I kinda took a hiatus from baits, as I suffered from a bit of a "burnout" (too many buddies wanting stuff...and not enough time to figure things out proper..ie..swimming/weighting/etc). Now, I'm back B)

Here's a link to the article. http://www.tackleunderground.com/board/kb.php?mode=article&k=43

As for pictures, Google Images and Yahoo Images are readily available. Personally, I prefer taking pic with a digital Camera at the highest resolution. That way, the pics are yours to use anyway you want and the quality is much better. JMHO
