    I have seen a few cats mounted in bait stores I have been in. Wouldn't want one myself but they looked alright.

    The taxidermist don't actually mount the catfish (skin too thin). They use a mold based on type, length, and weight. So if you catch a monster, you can release it, and still have a mount made.

    I have seen a replica of a blue cat and a flathead. Look good. You will need some measurements of length and girth for sure. Wouldn't hurt to also take a good picture of your fish. I wouldn't mind having one myself.

    Let the fish go. Take a pic and hang that on your wall. By releasing the big fish it gives my sons something to fish for in the future.

    catch photo replica.

    these are airbrushed from fiberglass replicas fitting your closest measurments.

    there about $7-10$ an inch depending on the taxidermists.

    and i defend the right to eat your fish. but totally agree with the right to cpr it too.

    blue channel flathead repros pics.:wink:
