I did a search and no thread of L-Lers panfish mounts.

I'll lead off.

17 in white bass. 

Mount did by TIKS in 95.

Caught on lake Oconomowoc on a crankbait fishing for Bass.

This is a replica that I had done of a legitimate 12" bluegill that my wife caught, July of 2021.  I think that it turned out great.  Fish of a lifetime.

Just bumped into this thread.  Nice looking fish!

I've never had a fish (or any animal) mounted before.  Generally, what is the going rate for a replica mount, and what type of information is needed to have it done as close to the "real thing" as possible (measurements, photos, etc.)?

Someone wanted to see a sunfish(pumpkinseed) mount. A good friend of mine just started doing replica mounts. He's a guide and wildlife artist named Jim Tostrud and prefers to release the mounters. He's in Kenosha. Check him out. Here is a pic of a sunnie that he did  this year.
