I just recently caught the best bass I've ever caught. It was landed in a private pond so I put it back to give somebody else the chance to have a great experience.

I've been researching information on replica mounts and wondered if anybody knew of or could recommend a person that did this kind of work.

The only bad part is the battery on our scale was dead so I have no idea the weight of the fish.

Try these guys. They do great work, but it is pricey. $199 up to 15". 16+" is $13.50 an inch.

I'd wait man. You'll beat that, probably sooner than you'd think. And mounts aren't cheap.

Had some luck last night and caught and released one a little bigger. This one hit the scales at 6.1 pounds

Great fish and congrats to ya! Here is some maybe useful info for the future. What a taxidermist will need is length in girth in a couple of places,rough weight if you have it, total length and as many quality pictures as you can get from as many angles as possible. I never did have it done because it was very expensive and I've learned from past experince that Old Hickory and Priest hold many fish much larger than the 6 1/2 pounder that almost made me do it.
