    Can anyone recommend a good fish taxidermist to mount a muskie? I let him go and was thinking about it but wanted some pics or advice. Thanks guys

    Dang, lol. i thought some taxidermist repoed your fish due to owing him money. Was excited to hear the details of the story.

    I did leave that out there for poor interpretation, lol. I want a reproduction mount done and a good detailed painter.

    Gray Taxidermy, King Sailfish Mounts. If your looking for someone in Ky. Scot Kelly repainted a snapper I had mounted several years ago and did a great job

    Get online if you don’t find anyone local. I had my little girls first bass done by NE Taxidermy. Just sent a pic and dimensions and they did a great job.

    That's what I ended up doing. Many of the guys above would not return a call or email. I used Joe Pittante in Wisconsin. I got some information from some guys at Crash's Landing at Cave Run. I really appreciate everyone's information, thanks all.

    Not huge by most muskie fishing standards but big enough for me and the story that went with it, 5 stitches, my son and I by ourselves and him netting, etc. It was 43" about 18 lbs.
