I think this is a great idea. But I would mount that one you caught though. That is probably the cheapest mount you can do and then keep mounting all 10"ers and over you get in the future. When you accumulate a good 6 or so convert them into the stringer mount I am sure it could be done. Each fish could have its own story would be a great conversation piece for any den or office area.......shoot I would put that sucker in my living room.In my opinion I would not mount a ten inch fish alone, but I might mount five or six larger ones on a stringer.
take measurements and photos and get a replica, will last longer...and you can still eat it
Hey guys fished a small northern michigan lake tonight with my daughter and she caught this bluegill. Its little over 10 inches long! Was wondering what your thoughts are on mounting it?
