Had a great trip yesterday. Drove out to my Taxidermist and and picked up my wife's Lake Trout she caught this summer. I figure this is just as much a fishing trip report as any other, I did come home with a nice fish. Thought I'd share a few pictures,

My wife's fish from 2007 - 27 Lbs - 38.5 inches



My wife's Mount



My fish from 2005 - 30 Lbs - 39 inches



My Mount



Both Mounts Together On The Wall





Both fish are from Fishlake. Hope you like them, We sure do.

FLEH... We are really happy with the fish. Carey did a nice job. You know you are welcome in my boat anytime. I know my brother is anxiously awaiting his bull as well. Lucky or not I'd love to go to Alaska. Hope you're doing well.

are they skin mounts or replicas? I have fished FL 2 times. Never done that good up there. Mainly, i would just get a bunch of perch and a few small rainbows and splake.

Pavlik - they are skin mounts, from here on out they will be replicas. We fish fishlake a lot, and put in a lot of time to catch fish like that. It's all luck and spending the time out there to get lucky.

Those mounts are incredible. I love the elk horn backing. They certainly look great on the wall. Thank you for posting these. I love looking at fish mounts and it is good to see some on here.

Hey Tater, I would love to come out with you one of these days. Maybe next summer we can hook up and go out.
We are going to the SCI show in Reno in January and are looking at booking our moose hunt there. We have been talking to a bunch of outfitters and should have a pretty good idea when we get there. We may buy it for the chapter then auction it at the banquet and buy it there.
If you are really interested in going let me know we may be taking a few extra guys.
