    i caught a 6 1/2 pound 24 inch largemouth. i just got it back from the taxidermist today. well me and my mom want it to be in my room cos i caught it and my mom dont want to see a big fish in the living room. well my moms 2nd husband wants it to be in the living room. hes a *master angler* or so he thinks. hes 30 but acts like hes 5. hes a spoiled little brat. and dont care what my mom wants. he said it right to her face. well anyway he doesnt want it in my room, he wants to be able to look at it. well when he goes to work tomorow im going to put it in my room but i want to know how to hang a fish on the wall. the fish is on a piece of driftwood kinda of angled wit his mouth open. the driftwood is in a L shape. how do i mount one all the wall?!

    A 16 penny nail with some hot glue will work. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Be nice.


    12 Penny would be plenty big enough. But I like power drive screws. [​IMG]


    BTW, nice size fish! [​IMG]

    and a picture hanger and a small finishing nail would most likely get you in less trouble.​
