Football white crappie???

Discussion in 'Fish Taxidermy' started by Beltonbanger, Mar 29, 2015.

  1. Anybody know of any white crappie blanks that are these football looking fish? Every spring I get these 16½X16, 16X15,etc. I've checked everywhere I know!

    Just carve it out of foam. Not a biggy.
     

  3. Let me reword this.....I need a fiberglass replica. I carve the bodies. Catch and release is getting more and more popular.

    I understood from what you originally wrote you were looking for a reproduction. You may have to mold your own those are some unusual measurements for sure.
     
  5. ....that is what I was afraid of Mr. Jones. Thanks. I may mold the thing out of silicone like Kirby explained. That way I could mount the fish also. Thanks for the input!!!

    I would love to get one of those to mold also! Our crappie seem to run standard shape.

    Just in case you don't have a lot of experience casting fish yet, there are folks here that will cast fish for you. If I'm totally wrong on the experience comments my apologies!
     
  8. Good point Cecil. I have molded some before, but this may be touchy. Any offers? :)
