Trophy Crappie???

Recommended Posts

A lot of this depends on how much you like mounts. Pictures are fine for me, so it would take a 3 pounder to make me think about dropping $200 on a mount.

That said, I've seen beatiful mounts of 2 pounders.

 I'm with DMB on this one. Quite a chunk of change, and not because it's a Crappie ;)...

For me, any fish I would mount would have to be something special for the species and I would still probably opt for a replica. For a crappie I would think 4lbs at the least.

I agree with roadwarrior; for a crappie, it would have to go a solid 3 and it would be released! I'd just take a few measurements and photos and have a replica made. My son had a replica of a 29" salmon he caught with me while shad fishing on the CT River back in the late 80's. All we had was about 6 photos. The guy did a marvelous job. Much better than a skin mount. A "win-win" situation!  :)

I want to thank everyone for their input.  My fish was only about 2 pounds.  If I do decide to have a mount made it will have to be a replica mount because I don't have the fish any more.  But it was delicious.  :)
