Vitalshot- what is it exactly that you are looking for.. just tan and shave a hide to mount it yourself? Is the cape prepped to tan? Ears and nose turned, lips and eyelids split? All the red meat removed? Is it salt dryed or frozen?

As you can see, there is quite a bit unanswered in your question. If it is turned, split, rough fleshed and READY to tan, then I could tan and shave it for you fairly reasonable. If it needs all the rest, then sorry, I won't have time until the ice melts smile.gif

You can shoot me an email at smithmagc@q.com

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.

      Are the catfish still biting decent out there? Usually make it up earlier in the year have not made it up yet this year but I'm looking to come up one of the next couple evenings.
