    Can a good mount of a trophy fish be made from pictures and good measurements if you preferred or were required to release the fish? What measurements would be needed?

    What is the standard cost for this? I heard $10.00 an inch is average. Is this right?
  2. You will need three or four good photos. Take the length and girth measurement.One also around the belly will help. And your are looking at $10.00 and inch on the low end.But look around and pick a good taxidermist,and don't go for price.

  4. Orlando,
    Any pics of the walleye reproduction mount. I have been wanting to get one done but haven't decided where to go. Bass Pro is at the top of my list, I just wanted to see what a customer's one looked like...besides the ones they have on their website...

  5. Thanks...that looks like a great reproduction mount. I think that just about sealed the deal. The detail on it looks great! I just was scared that it would come back and not look real. I think they did a great job on yours!
