Channel Cat Mounts?

Has anyone ever had a Channel mounted? I'm curious as to how they look done.

IF YOU SEND ME A PM, I WON'T GET IT USUALLY UNLESS I SEND ONE FIRST. REPLY & TELL ME TO PM YOU

Re: Channel Cat Mounts?

It was supposed to be a skin mount. I was informed that the taxidermist ran into some problems and that the head is a repro and the rest is the actual skin. I'm not completely convinced of this, but I like the final product, so no complaints from me.

I'd say his only "problem" was lying to you about it being a skin mount....LOL

Re: Channel Cat Mounts?

Not to many taxidermists bother mounting catfish. With the oily skin it makes it difficult so most make replicas. There are several fish that fit in this catergory.
