Good Crappie taxidermist?

5 posts in this topic

Anyone have a reccommendation for a good taxidermist in the area? Specifically for a stringer mount of 5 nice Crappies? Thanks in advance.

What do most guys charge? I know most are by the inch but do some guys go by fish for smaller ones like crappies?

Most guy's around the area charge an average of $150-200 a crappie. I charge $175 for one crappie and drop the price a little for every crappie you bring in. For five slabs would cost about $135/ crappie, which would include driftwood.

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
