About to tackle my first salmon replica. Its a LCR 35X20.5 FR. Anyhow I just opened the box and am not sure I like what I'm seeing. It appears to be bumpy on the show side. Debating on throwing a paint job on it or not. Wondering if when I put some paint on the bumps will be less of a focal point or if I need to go looking elsewheres for a different blank. This is not to be a bust on Lake Country thread as so far they've knocked every fish they've sent me out of the park. Can anyone relate with a salmon replica?
