The first article says Lytle's fish was kept in Cabela's aquarium in Kearney.
How was this fish kept alive ?

  • Jim:
  • "I kept the wiper alive by putting the fish in the livewell after I caught it, went to the Marina, and transferred the wiper to a big tank that the marina kept their live baits in. A fisheries biologist from North Platte, NE came down about 1 1/2 hours later to the Marina to verify the species and weight of the record wiper on a certified scale and took measurement of the fish. He contacted Cabela's in Kearney, NE and asked them if they would like to have a state record wiper in their aquarium that I would donate. They said that they would like to have the state record wiper. He told them that he have an aerator pump with a large tank in back of his pickup and can take the wiper to the Fish Hatchery in North Platte where they can meet him and tranfer the wiper from North Platte to Cabela's aquarium in Kearney. That how the fish was kept alive".
  • "Also, I forgot to tell you that the fish died about a month later. The
    fisheries biologist from North Platte, NE got the wiper back, collected the
    fish scales and other studies on the wiper, and then buried it".

I would have thought the fish would have been mounted ..!!! ??

I looked into a plastic Wiper replica ....$300 and up. I don't know the cost comparison ,but a real mount may be less. Anyone have any Wiper mounts that could shed some light on the costs ?

I have been thinking of some sort of apparatus that could be towed along side of a boat. A wiper could be placed in while trolling that would revive the fish till it was released.

It really depends on the taxidermist you choose.

'Em are some fine fish. I'm sure Indiana has them that big in the lakes and not just in the tailwaters, but I have not had anything near that size yet. Maybe this year, if winter will just get the hell out of here. It's like my wife's family at Christmastime. They come to visit and there's no getting rid of them.

Toothfish,

I charge $10.00/inch on Hybs and stripers for a skin mount. So, $300.00 is close for a skin mount.
Fiberglass replica's range from very poor detail to very good, depending who you get them from. I generally order the best there is, as I can't stand a poor looking mount, let alone, charge for one.

The good replicas come in parts and pieces (head, body, fins, gills, and mouth parts), to be assembled and painted by the taxidermist. A good fiberglass mount is very hard to tell from a skin mount, and will last forever. They typically run 25-50% higher in price.

I agree that the fish should have been mounted, in one form or another. If the fish wasn't too far gone after it died, a mold could have been made from the actual fish.

It must have been a real treat to watch a fish that size swimming through the store tank for the month it survived. Was there any mention of what they fed it?

Thanks Yaz . I was wondering about quality ,as most of our local taxidermist have never seen a Wiper ... Would hate to find it looking more like one of those "green" bass !!
