I did 7 of these mounts last year for myself and others, For the final product I drilled a hole in the base of the skull and put a lag bolt through it. I then made discs out of cedar cutting it so the bark was all around it. Drill a hole in it and fasten the lag bolt with a wing nut

I SHilaked the cedar and mounted it with a 2x2 so it would have an angle off the wall. They all turned out really nice. ill get a pic on here when i have a chance.

I knew a guy with a bansaw and had him cut me some of the cedar discs, I have about 50 + of these discs for future use, if your interesed i may be able to find one for you otherwise the cabelas kit works well too.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
