Why is it that most fish guys price per inch? Who on here doesn't price per inch, and what caused you to come up with doing it a different way? I'm finishing up on the handful of fish I've accumulated over the past several years that have been sitting in my freezer and am thinking about trying to take in some customer fish or maybe do small batches wholesale; which lead me to think about pricing. Deer guys don't price on the size of the deer---they charge the same whether they're mounting a 2 1/2 year old 120 class or a 5 1/2 year old booner. Bird guys don't price more for bigger Toms with long beards and spurs or for roosters with longer tails or spurs---they typically charge the same for whatever category of bird they're taking in (i.e. duck, upland, turkey, goose, etc.). So why do most fish guys charge differently for a 27" walleye versus a 30" walleye when they're essentially the same amount of work? I'd rather do a 29" given proper field care than a roughed up 25" with split fins. Wouldn't it make more sense to charge a flat rate by type of fish? Not trying to offend anyone.....simply something that crossed my mind and made me wonder if guys charge by the inch just because that's the way it's always been done and they've heard of others doing it or if it is legitmately something they put thought into. My inquiry is primarily in regards to skin mounts but I'm curious as to how you replica guys price too. Anyone a wholesale guy or use one? What's the going rate?
