Pop a couple of 45 rounds in that thing. Just in case itís some kind of Russian hi-jinx or possibly a Taliban Trojan horse.

Öbetter yet, douse it in gasoline and strike a match.

New Wave Taxidermy

She went 32" w/o a tail pinch Weighed just shy of 10 lbs.
We released her pretty quick & only had her out of the water a short time for measurements & pics. She was still aggressive when she swam off.

They do an awesome job but the waiting list is long. I am tempted to have them do a big flounder I caught a few years ago.

That trout is awesome. Still looking to bust the 30" mark.

What are the stats on flounder, that's a big girl.

She was a tad over 24 1/2". She hit that single hook Corkie the day after Christmas, thought it was a good Redfish.

My personal best on a pole was about the same size. Was throwing a top water in chest deep water and the blow up was incredible. She came about a foot out of the water. Flounder make beautiful mounts. It would be a great compliment to your gator of a trout.

Now I just have to figure out if it will need a backdrop or not. It has a bracket on the back side to hold it about 2 inches off of the wall or whatever you mount it on. Possibly a piece of driftwood. I guess I just need to sample with it.

Thanks

Huge trout and looks great. Glad the release was strong.
Big flounder and great picture of it.
My little brother caught a door mat when we were in high school on a silver spoon. He always shows up and catches something big.
