    I thaw in a tub of cold water till just pliable enough to pose for tracing and measuring. Then skin. Watch closely, will thaw fairly fast. Will skin easier if partially frozen.

    You can get all your measurements from the fish before skinning and then compensate a little for the skin thickness when carving or buying a form.
