Coho repro

Discussion in 'Fish Taxidermy' started by big J, Oct 4, 2017.

  1. Does anyone know where I can get a Coho Repro That's 37 length and 24 girth Around 25 LBS. I looked in LCR and Arps but they don't have one.

    Big river reproductions has one 36x22.5. Good guy to work with and the blank that I got had fantastic scale detail

    I was contacted by the same guy there was only one coho blank I could locate that even came close to those dimensions. Truly a monster coho from the Great Lakes!

    He sent me a pic yesterday. His original girth measurement was a bit off. Fish is closer to the 20 in girth range

    Technically, you can use a King (Chinook) salmon blank and change out the head.

    Who knows probably a few. I’ve learned in my short time in the industry that if they don’t say what they want and ask how to pay within the first few sentences of a message or email that they are mostly tire kicking and price shopping

    You know, I was thinking this all sounded familiar!!! Didn't someone else have someone asking about an enormous, over sized Coho recently?

    The Coho I have is 35x23 so the fish posted on Facebook is no where near the size he claims.

    Showed him the envision blank a few days ago. He said he was must have been measured wrong on the girth.
     
  17. Has he contacted you since then, I hadn"t heard from him since he contacted me.
