Painting a Lane Snapper

by Mike Kirkhart

Many a taxidermist has skin-mounted lane snappers as they are worthy of skin-mount status. The fish I am painting in this schedule is a reproduction. The same colors apply, but skin-mounts will have details to guide painters while with blanks/repros, we have to find our way. My fish in this schedule photo was 17 inches and is the only mold I have, probably because of their skin-mount ease and typical size. Either way you choose to mount one, the colors will be applied similarly so no worries.
