If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

Skin the fish, remove as much meat as possible, lay the remaining carcass in a plastic tray of some kind with many small holes drilled in the bottom, and bury it.  After a few months dig it up, wash it off bleach the bones, and there you have it. OR ... skin, de-meat it, and put in a covered container with water ... plain water ... and let it rot or "macerate" in the water for a few weeks.  Open container, hold your breath, wash the bones, bleach, dry and there you have it.  

Last option - and the most costly - send the fish carcass to Skulls Unlimited! ;)  It all depends on your budget for such things.  

Last, last option ... buy one from Carolina Biological Supply Company!

Sounds like fun.  But first you have to catch a fish!
