To me, that a big fish period, no matter the name! I've never caught a fish near that size. Would help if I ever went fishing. Not fished in years. I would love to set a hook into a big fish like that! I can't help you with the animal stuffers.

Have found a couple taxidermists(sp)(animal stuffers)...Cheapest so far has been..$12 a inch..prices from $490+ to $600...I say take all the pictures you can..and release it ..maybe someone else can catch it..I told the neighbor that caught this fish to buy a fiberglass mold at bass pro shop...kinda cheaper.....B,

It's not cheap to get em stuffed. Hell of a nice fish though. I think a big high res blown up pic would be better then a mounted fish. JMHO
