Fish Taxidermy

What to do when you catch a fish thats worth mounting?

Frequently I get calls from fisherman on the lake asking “what do I do to save this fish I want mounted? My best advice is keep it alive as long as possible until you get home. If your fish dies keep it COLD! Measure the length (tip of mouth to the tip of tail). The girth measurement¬†(fattest part of fish)¬†if you want a replica made. When you get home wrap your fish in a wet towel, not newspaper. A wet towel will help keep the scales from sticking. Newspaper is bad these days because of the ink they are using. Make sure all the fins are laying flat against the body. Then slide into a plastic bag, mark and put in the freezer.
