Default Got my Antero mount back too!!

I caught this 25" 8 lbr on 1/17/09, kept him in the freezer a couple of weeks, brought him to the taxidermist, and got him back already! I went and picked it up last Saturday... That must be some kind of record I think and the price was $7.50/ inch!! Not as big as Coloradokid's monster, but pretty good. I think he did a great job in making the fish look like it did when I pulled her through the ice. If you look close you can see the Rat Finkee I used on the wood. That is a piece of driftwood I picked up on a flowage in Northern Wisconsin about 25 years ago. I was just waiting for the right opportunity to use it I guess!

Picture on the Ice next to a 21"' cutbow:


Before the Freezer - color is kind of washed out in this photo:
