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.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
