    Good Luck

    No No No...use fish filler. I would think that bondo would be very difficult to deal with as a fish filler...even when using the half cast method.

    Ahh hell do it man!!!! What’s wrong with a 9” 10lb bluegill with cooked skin, no scales or probably short stubby fins cause you cooked them also.
    You can use cream of tarter,vinegar, baking soda will aid in slowing down the set time plus use ice cold water .
    Try that and you should have ample time .
