Default Replica Fish Mount

Looking for some advice on getting a replica mount of a Speckled Trout. Have great pics and measurements so Iím definitely ready to put one on the wall. Read a recent thread about this topic and there wasnít really anyone specific named, and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction as I donít have a clue where to start. Plenty of Google results, but was looking for some personal experience in this process. Thanks guys.

You could do this, cheaper. 26" trout.
Biggest problem is finding a shop that knows how to get the exact size you want. Then you have to build the frame.

When I showed the wife the pic of the trout on the computer screen, she says "Oh, nice fish."
When I brought home the life size pic, her eyes got real big and said "Thats a BIG fish!"
Size matters.

Thanks Kanaka, that does look awesome! Great pic! Iílldefnitely keep that in mind. I will be setting up a display with a couple pictures next to the mount, one holding the fish, and one as she is swimming away in the clear water.

Want the mount so I can give some reference to the size of the fish, as most people have no clue what a huge trout looks like in person. And also because the whole series of events was one of the most memorable catches Iíve ever had.

Ok, I’ll say it, I want to see the pics, how big was she, because I’ve seen you post some toads, this must be a special trout

Been having issues posting pics here, but I’ll see what I can do. She was 29 3/4” without pinching tail, 16” girth and was just under 9lbs on the Boga, and caught in Pensacola. 3rd biggest trout I’ve caught. The story, for me, was what really made it special though.

The one good thing about the pic direction is the color corrections/changes to make it pop.
That's a beast fo sure!!! Congrats on the catch.

I had a fiberglass mount done by a south FL company...don't remember who but the Taxidermy I used for my last deer will do a fiberglass mount so I think most would....
