I had mounted a nice white crappie a few months ago. He was fine when skinning till I got to more of the fleshing part. He started losing a good amount of scales. I continued and washed him a few times and put him in my fish “tan” solution. I taken him out to mount him. He lost even more scales while mounting him. Is this a common thing with white crappie or something with the fleshing process?? And how would I fix this. Should I sculpt them back on? Here is how he looked before I skinned him. Here is him after I mounted. You can sort of tell where he is missing them all. Most are gone from the back and belly.
