    For anyone who catchs such a big calico like the one in this post, ther really is no need to kill it to mount it, take a picture of it and let it go!

    Or, a easier choice, call Robert fish mounts, I'm sure they still have the mold from my 12.5lb Calico laying around, just copy mine!

    I absolutely agree with all you guys 100%! Catch, picture, release is what should have been done, but like I noted previously, this fish was gut hooked with an 8/0 Aki Hook.

    The customer had all intentions of releasing the fish, but once brought onto the boat by a net, not a gaff, we realized that the hook was in deep. As carefully as we could, we tried to remove the hook with injuring the fish, but the outcome was not so favorable at all.

    By all means, we have not intentions of killing such a great and rare fish, but the customer didnt want to throw back a fish that was going to die.

    We released countless quality bass up to 8 pounds.

    Like I said, we have no intentions of just going out there and kill whatever is on the other end of the line. But in this case and scenario, the fish did not make it.
