You got him, finally after all these years, countless hours and cash spent on tricking that huge lunker to bite, you caught a wall mounter.
This tip is in regards to real fish skin mounts not reproductions.
So lets say your taxidermist is not open for a few days and taking in the fresh fish is not an option. Or if you are like me, you didn’t have the cash until the next pay period for your new wall decoration. No worries, preserving your trophy is easy.
