2.1 lb Crappie- Wall worthy??
« on: May 04, 2011, 05:43 PM »
Been getting into some nice crappie. Got one 2.1 lbs. Lot of my friends are telling me to get her mounted. Just wondering your thoughts on what size is wall worthy.

I would! It's maybe a once in a life time fish.

Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish.

if you have the money id mount her. hopefully you have it frozen the right way.  can always sell it for more than it cost to mount it! only a thought

Pretty small picture ???  Either way I would have had it at the Taxidermist before I would have been able to post a picture on here! ;D

Congrats on a real nice Crappie!

I would get it mounted.  I saw a mount that had a few fish on a stringer hanging off a piece of drift wood, it looked real nice, and I want to get a mount like that when I get some nice Crappies.

If it was not handled with mounting in mind when it was caught most likly it is damaged.  Best to keep it alive or wrapped in a wet towell. Scale damage will be a minimum.

This is an 18in. 3lb 4oz from last fall.
