Most of the mounts on this thread are from S&S taxidermy in minot, hands down the best walleye & pike painting I've seen

Not trying to start anything ahab, but don't you think the verticle "dark lines" on the side are way too pronounced?  Frenchy in Minot does that too and I think they make the walleye look too perch-like.  Gorgeous fish, just don't like the paint job. jmo.

It's hard to appreciate any of the mounts above without seeing them in person.  Type of light, angle, etc. will affect the perception.  It also depends on what the fish looked like and if that was a goal in the mount.  Everybody has what they like and dislike and those can be communicated to a taxi before work is done.  One thing I am a big stickler on is shape.  Some of the forms I have seen don't look to walleye like in shape.  To address your question above, some fish have that type of marking as well.

To me the 4 fish on the stringer look the best of any and the most natural. My roommate has a couple walleyes done by S&S and I have seen a ton of his work and have been nothing but impressed.

That stringer mount is awesome!

I have done a lot of research on taxidermy as that is what I'm going to do when I retire. You NEED to check out Rick Krane, his work is second to none! Check out his website

anglerartistry.com

Or just google his name or the shops name...it's worth the time for anyone wanting to have an exceptional mount in their home.

His repos are out of this world as well.

Ive never really looked into reproductions.  Not to hijack this thread, but do prices compare on average to real fish mounts?

I only have the prices from one taxidermist but for reproductions you have two options, one is 75 cents an inch cheaper than a regular mount and the other option is 2 dollars per inch more than a regular mount.  I have always thought the essence of the fish is much better preserved with a real mounted fish instead of a replica, although some replicas are very good, I guess it depends on who does them but for me I think ill stick with mounting real fish for now.
