 A friend of mine caught a whopper club-sized smallmouth and given they don't do alot of fishing he would like to get it mounted.  Any recommendations on who to take it to that does good work on bass?

 I would recommend Wayne's out of Lakota, he did a smallmouth for me and it turned out fantastic.  I believe has has won several awards on his smallmouth bass mounts.  Other family members have taken walleyes and perch there and they have all turned out great.

That gill mount will be insanely awesome.  Wayne did a bluegill for a friend of mine a couple years ago and it was the best bgill mount i have seen.  That 2lber is a rare catch!

Anyone else have any suggestions?

Wayne doesn't do email or have a website.  He doesn't have an answering machine either.  He can be reached at 701-247-2628.  He is like the soup nazi on seinfeld.  Mess up once and you're outta there.  joking he is a great guy and will talk your ear off.

I know Dakota Taxidermy is awesome in Bismarck for big hame heads.  I haven't seen their fish but I would think they would be good too.
