I got it a week ago but my cell phone will not let me post pics here without resizing it?

Unbeknownst to me, my fiancé Kelly sent the pics of my walleye from last spring to Lax Reproductions in Wisconsin for a wedding present. Pictures don't do the paint job justice!

The only thing I wasn't satisfied with was the head! They use existing molds for the head. She had the biggest head I have seen and 21" girth.

Unless you kill the fish it's hard to get an exact replica
I had the same problem with a Laker replica, the molds they use didn't do it justice.
Kudo's to you for letting her swim away, a 21" girth for a Walleye is massive.

A big laker and a Pike is what I want next! Should also be getting our 2014 and 2013 bucks back soon.

That's the best walleye mount I've ever seen. I know it's a replica but it way better than any skin mounted wally I've seen.

Yah its cool!

I'm not much for mounts. Much rather take the bucks and pay for more lures or fishing gas.

Very cool mount! Yeah the replica will never represent the actual dimensions due to them using body blanks and head and fin molds from whatever skin mount of the past (I believe that's how it's done).
