Thats a nice crappie. It would make a verry nice mount. I wish I would have mounted two I caught five years ago they where 14 1/4 and 14 1/2. I haven't caught anything over 12 inches scince. I would do it.

Nice crappie!! A few years ago, a friend and I caught 6 in one day, all over 14 inches! He took them to Schaffer I believe his name is, in Madison Lake. He did an awesome job. He put them all on a piece of drift wood in a glass case. Jeff Holmin in rural Nicollet is another great taxidermist. crazy.gif

I would say, if you already brought it home, you should mount it. I have, let go a few walleyes and sunfish I wish I would have mounted. My goal this year is to get another mounter! It sounds like you have one, Do it!

Larry Reinbold has a shop near Lake George.

He has been in business for many years and does a excellent job on Fish and any size wild game. Stop by his shop and see his work in process. He has mounts on display and time to visit !

Find him in the Yellow Yellow pages under Taxidermy.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
