Do you love big bluegill?
I'm posting this here because I know there are some extremely good Taxidermist here.
I have yet to catch a fish worthy of hanging on my wall, but I feel like 2014 is the year for me!
What needs to be done? Can the fish be released? If I take great measurements/photo's will that work? Or does keeping the entire fish just work better? I know Taxidermist who do fish have to be amazing artists, but I feel like having the actual skin would work a lot better. Though I don't really know.
Is there a price difference for the different types of mounts?
If I end up with more questions I'll just add them later.
Im with wolfewiz - Id like to know to.
take a good picture measure the fish and get a replica made.they are beautiful ,look as good as or better than most skin mounts.it a win win .for you and the gene pool of the fish
SO this method captures a memory, while the alternative captures at least some part of the real fish.
Yup I hope 2014 is the year for me too Jim !!!!!! Good idea on the replica .......
not preaching,my son looks at me like i am crazy,caught a 18 in crappie a few years ago measured it thru it back cause it was on spawn bed.actually caught 2 more i think were bigger.had 1 of those disposable cameras and none of the pics came out. a guy got a 21 incher 2 weeks later ,he kept it and had it mounted.it is a personal choice.as long as you legally catch it is yours
