    Does anyone have a recommendation for a taxidermist that does a nice job with crappie, preferably in the St. Charles area?

    My son stumbled across his first 15 incher this weekend and he wants to mount it...the 15 incher is somewhere in there with 29 other 10-14 inchers...

    Maybe you should get a mount of all those fish on the stringer. With the biggest one out front of course.

    I have contacted bilbreytaxidermy and will be asking them to do the mount...one of the pictures on their Facebook page was the clincher...very good looking mount.

    You won't be disappointed. He's done all my fish. Takes a special talent to paint crappie an brad has it down.

    caf4, I had a 6lb rainbow mounted by Tucker Bros. 20 years ago and it still looks great. Also have one done by Bilbrey that's pretty good but he's a hike for you. Nice haul of fish there. Talley I guess.
