    Could you make me a replica of H20dogg's fish? HA HA HA. Thanks for that information. I have always wondered about txidermy options but never taken the time to figure it out. Guess I have not caught a fish big enough to mount yet but it's good to know I can snap a picture and send em back. Thanks for the info.

    Sure could.. Being its a cold water fish a skin mount would be the last option anyway but done with a artificial head.. the fish found in Alaska other than Pike would all be reproductions.. some smaller rainbows.. 20" and under could be skin mounted.. but a repro cast head is the only way to go if you want the fish to look good and last along time. Its pretty common these days for folks to catch, take a picture or two and release the fish back into the water to be caught another day.. Hard to judge a length and girth off a pic, a simple measurment of the total length and girth if possible and some clear side veiw pics are all thats needed.

    repro

    Your taxidermist shouldn't have much trouble re-creating the fish by using the pictures that you provided.. I used a number between the 2 you gave, 38-42" and found a real nice repro laker in 41.5" in length from lake county reproductions....A good taxidermist could also paint your fish to match the picture pretty close.

    I fought it for about 10 min. what took the most time was getting her head to come up the hole. I was using 30 lb. braided line, I would've used 50 lb. test if I knew about that fish.

    I would love to have a replica mount made. But our measuring equipment was frozen. It was -30 that morning.

    Im guessing 38-42 in. long around 30 lbs? I have no idea on girth. Has anyone ever gotten a girth on a fat laker before?
