I've got two crappie in the freezer now that I'm going to mount, but I have a couple questions. One of them is frozen in a block of ice..thats the way it came to me. Problem is, how in the heck am I supposed to measure the thing? I have liqua cure on hand for the tanning, plus stop rot and all the other goodies. So my question is, can I thaw it out measure it, then put it back in the freezer, or would I be better off to thaw it completely then "tan" it. And if i can do the later, can a liqua cured fish be refrozen for mounting at a later date....sorry for all the questions, I'm new at this fish thing. ???
