    Beautiful fish, congrats on what must have been an awesome day!

    I can't congratulate someone for intentionally killing a trophy fish. Let them swim!!!!!

    Don't people realize fiberglass lasts longer and allows others to enjoy the moment? I understand it is his right and he is obeying all laws in doing this but I would still encourage folks to get a replica instead.

    I personally thing replicas look better but like you said its his choice. At least we know that was not the only double digit in the lake.

    It's Andy's right. He has like 6 real mounts of double digit bass on his wall at home from various trips. When he first started fishing a 4lber was a big fish so he mounted those too and hung them on the wall. He living room is like "night of the living dead" for black bass.

    I have one of each in my office.

    In my case, the origianal's appearance From 1989) is still better than the replica (from 1992).

    Though that was back then when they first rolled out the replica mounts.

    Both fish were gret memories in addition great monetary values (for back then).

    No sig needed.....

    You know......David has thrown back many, many, many, fish ..... enough for all to enjoy......I respect his decision to keep and mount. She was fully spawned out and she would've gone twelve easy during her egg carrying days. David has one smallmouth, one striped bass, and one nine pounder caught with his Dad (has sentimental value). Lets not blow this out of proportion or put him in bad a light......he is not breaking any laws and he has put in his time and paid his dues.....congrats to my buddy again !!!!!
