Taxidermy Fish Pictures

29 posts in this topic

As a relatively new sponsor, I thought I would share some photos of my recent work. I promise not to flood this site with pics, but rather share a couple now and then, ie fish, bird, gamehead, of the month.

The two fish today are a 17" 2lb.14oz. black crappie from Minnesota and a spotted gar from texas.

Thanks for looking! BA

Those looks great man! I wish you would share more but I'll be patient!

Some day I would like a replica of a huge Flathead Catfish (when I catch a 50+ lber) and have a Bullhead in it's mouth.

That's probably the nicest crappies I've ever seen done, and I'm not just talking about the size. The colors are great! Good job!

I usually don't like crappie mounts cause the coloring but yours looks pretty darn good!!!! Would like to see some more of your work also!!

I don't want to be too critical as the mounts are excellent, but if I were to make a suggestion (and keep in mind, I'm just a layman), I'd prefer the tail of the crappie to be fully fanned. Just my opinion.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Nice. Are those real or replica? How big is the gar?

These are both skin mounts. The gar was right at 8lbs., and about 36" long. Pretty good size for a spotted gar.

Very nice! I am generally not a fan of dead animal wall hangings but these really take you to the lake. You have to respect the art form that is done with the added pressure of being a once in a lifetime catch for most customers!

Do you have any pictures of your walleye mounts? I would like to see them and keep you in mind if i decide to get another mount done. I heard you do good work and do like the pics of the mounts posted.

    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
    • DOILIES. Those thing on yer man-cave table tops. So that's a pic of DOLLY, huh? Smurf 's ol' gal friend....or yers?       
    • The first piece that Golden State might be losing is Andre Iguadala. Would love to see the wolves grab him.
    •   Sure anytime. But, it kind of sounded above you were over Dollies?  Or was that Dolly's?  
    • With all the moist and cool weather, the slugs are having a feast on our garden plants.  My wife asked me to look over some plants that the insects were destroying.  Upon inspection, this is what we found - slugs.  The vegetables treated with slug bait were fine.  It was the flowers, asters, marigolds, pole beans, etc. that were untreated and weakened by some hail were experiencing a slow death.  Check this photo out of the slugs.  These were white like extra large maggots.  They are all treated and coming back strong.
    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
