nice job for a begginer looks like your eye is in backwards. Use some more colors on your next crappie add some shimmers and some more black especially high lighting the fins and lower your air pressure to darken the spotting I have seen some proffessional taxidermist mounts that look worse. Good start

it cost me about $25 to mount the crappie, and I got paid $50 total....I didnt use shimmers becasue I am a little strapped on money right now, I plan on getting some soon though

I agree that the eye looks backwards, but I think its the glare from the flash because I definately didnt set it that way

looks darn good to me...  I was thinking the eye looked a little 'off' put cannot put a finger on it..  not backwards per se, maybe angled a little downwards?  I dunno, then again it could be the angle of the camera etc. 

I do not do fish yet, really do not have much time to do anything, but hope mine turn out like that one...  I doubt I would get any complaints on that type of quality...
