I just caught a 21-inch Large Mouth Bass and want to get it mounted. I’ve never gotten a fish mounted before…Thanks for your time and answers…..

The only thing I would add is be sure and get a set of measurements before freezing. And WRITE them down!!! They (Fish) will shrink when frozen! 98% of mounted fish today are cast totally from fiberglass moulds that are custom made based on measurements supplied to the Taxidermist beforehand.Most modern Taxiudermist’s don’t even use the original fish skin anyway………
I have 32 different mounts total in my home and shop, and they are all cast professionally. Can’t tell them from the REAL thing….They were all made on my measurements, along with the fish (frozen) !
