So I apologize for posting a completely unrelated topic but Im unsure who else to ask. Over 3 years ago I caught an 8 pound 6 oz largemouth bass out of a local pond. At age 14 I was pretty stoked and its still my largest bass to date. Not kowing about fiberglass replicas I foolishly kept the bass for a skin mount. Looking back, I should have snapped a few pics and taken measurments and released it. The only measurements I have is the weight and the length - 24". I also only have one crummy iphone 4 photo. All that said- i took it to a local taxidermist who promised to have it done in 6 - 9 months. After a year we followed up and he said he had been hurt from a ladder injury. We showed grace, he said 2 more months. 6 months pass- he says his mother has been sick and we will have the fish within 2 months. Another few months pass and we decide to take the fish to another taxidermist, but he refuses. He will not give the fish back to us but did give us the check back. He says he is going to finish the fish and put it up for sale in his shop. What can i do? I doubt he is going to really finish the fish - im not sure he even has it anymore. we have our money back but i dont care about the 100 dollar down deposit. That fish has sentimental value and Im not sure what steps to take. Being 18 im not super comfortable with knocking on his door and demanding the fish since he works out of his garage. Any advice?
