Caught this bass at Lake Fork back in 2011. Was hoping I would have caught a bigger one by now, but I haven't.
I didn't take any measurements when I caught her only weighed her. 8lbs 5oz. Full of eggs. Now I would like to get a replica made for my living room. I would appreciate any help on measurements.

When I got the replica of my wifes fish done, the taxidermist just had a catalog and I believe it have the mounts by weight and length. Don't quote me on that it has been a couple of years ago. I think you can look up mounts on the net and get close.

And, here is Roland Martin's formula for bass:

Square the length and multiply times its girth (all measurements in inches) then divide by 1200.

So: a 23" fish with a 20" girth = 23 X 23 X 20 = 10580

10580 divided by 1200 = 8.82 lbs.

Martin caught as many as anyone, so his statistical sampling size would be good.

Nice bass. Any good taxidermist will know how big to make your replica. The good ones have done literally hundreds of fish that size and may even have finished replicas that size hanging around their showroom they would sell you. They do them for trade shows and competitions and then sell them

Lake Fork Taxidermy and Ron Kelley are two of the best. Call them.

I have a little different idea. Get back out to Fork sometime in the next 30 days and get you a new one to measure. A bigger one. You can do it. Now is the time.

Thanks I gave Ron a call. Haven't heard of him, but he's gonna send me some pics to look at and give me a quote.
