Default Need replica crappie taxidermist

My boy caught a jumbo crappie a couple weeks back and he wants it on the wall. Anyone on here to replica mounts? We were lucky enough to release the fish, so skin mount is out of the question.

Thanks in advance.

Lake Fork Taxidermy or Ron Kelly should get you what you need, depending on where you are in N Texas

Ron or Josh Kelley
Also Kenneth Bauman in Oklahoma does some really nice replica work.

Ron Kelly did my last one. Heís an artist for sure but his business skills suck. He lied to me for a year about when it would be done. One excuse after another. He just painted a fish. It looks nothing like the fish I caught. He honestly kinda ruined the whole thing for me. Just do what you say you will. Iím super easy to deal with. Bill Muntz with Fin and Bonz taxidermy in Temple currently is making a replica of my 3.71 from Grenada last month and my sons 3.17 from Fork. Most my Crappie Masters buds use him and they get their fish back in 2-3 month. Thatís what Ron will likely tell you as well but a year later you will still be wondering where your fish is. My $.02 anyhow! Congrats to your son and good on you for getting him a replica! Thatís awesome!!

I always forget about her! I've seen some great back crappie she's done. She did a duck for little man and got it back sooner that I expected!
