can someone tell me what is a good price to get a bull red mounted? i took measurements and pictures...........some one told me $16 an inch, but that sounds way too expensive to me.............any input would be great
I looked into mounting one a couple years ago and the prices I got were $10-$11 per inch. A 44 inch redfish was gonna cost me $450. I decided to take a nice picture and eat it. Fiberglas replicas were just as expensive. I would be surprised if you found a taxidermist to do it for less than $12 per inch today. Maybe find a guy who is just learning or does them at cost as a hobby. Might not be as sharp as a pro, but much less expensive.
I got one done about 5-6 years ago and everyone wanted 10-12 per inch. I'd bet it is around 15 or so now. I was able to find someone in larose for 5 and inch, but that was 5-6 years ago. I got a 42 inch done for 210.
Bad part is i don't have his name or his number. I only know where he lives and I don't even know if he still does mounts.
I know its not too helpful, but there are better deals out there.
I just had a 8lb 5oz bass done that I caught at Flase river in March. Its cost me 320 I know its expensive but the guy dose awsome work and it was well worth it. That was the 2nd bass he mounted for me and I know the quality of work he dose. To me its all about the quality.
Hey rat red,
I might be able to help you out with the redfish mount. I have been doing fish mounts for about fourteen years to save my friends and family some money and as a hobby of mine. If you email me the size of the fish then I can shoot you a quote along with some pictures of my work if you're interested.
