I'll bet you didn't know I collect fish from the Gulf of Mexico and local bays, including the Ten Saw River which is near by. Believe this if you will I also mounted all these specimens through the years. As you can see meany of these mounts are near records and some are very rare.
PS: All of these fish mounts are setting on shelves or hanging on my wall in my home. If you are ever out this way give me a call and come by, I will give you the grand-tour. I know the first question you will ask: Charlie! Where did you get all of these beautiful mounted fish? Well now lets don't forget I was a master taxidermist for several decades and fulfilled the needs of many clients. Unknowing to the customer I not only mounted his specimen , but made one for myself as well. Some of the fibber glass mounts I purchased from Mr. Warren in Panama City before he passed on. I also collect rare sea shells, vintage lures and fishing rods an reels. Of course what was impossible for me to find I carved...here are a few below that I did over the years.
