Title: Any interest?
Post by: Pistol Gripper on December 15, 2006 - 10:32:49 AM
I have a real mounted Barracuda ( the fish ) at home, anyone think I should auction it off here ?  It's in average shape for having hung on a wall for quite a few years.  Pictures can be taken if there's any interest.

P.G.

OK,

Finally got some pics.  The first one was taken on a standard chair and the fish hangs over each arm.

P.G.

I figure a little touch up and it won't look too bad.

Unless I hear different, I guess I'll just hang him back up in my non-existant garage.

FOR SALE:

1 of 1 Barracuda. 

A4 Exterior
E5 Interior
X9 Trim
Stripe Delete
Radio Delete

No rust anywhere,  just a few chips on the tailpanel and quarters.  The Grill is in great shape, no cracks or missing pieces.  This baby was fast in it's day, many people tried to catch her, only one ever did.  Was running strong before it was put into storage.  Probably only needs a little TLC to get her going again.

P.G.

You can have them made without ever seeing a fish. Today, all you have to do is have a good photo and they will make it for you. Look in the back of outdoor magazines if you really want one.

Some other leads to try...go online and search or call them.
Bass Pro Shops
Cabelas
Meltons
Finest Kind

TC,

I didn't take it that way.  To me there's a big difference between a real fish and a plastic one.

TC, we know you were not trying to do anything negative, it was just a "J/K" kind of comment, sorry, I thought the   "  :roflsmiley: "   would have clued ya in on that element of my post.

So TC, ya thinking about posting a bid on this rare and preserved "fish" ?  :roflsmiley:
Title: Re: Any interest?
Post by: Topcat on December 21, 2006 - 09:39:22 PM
I'm waiting to catch one myself and hang that. Friends would come over and ask..."when did ya catch that?"
Then I would have to make up a fish story to entertain em.

 :roflsmiley: Yep, sounds like the guy I met at Carlisle a couple years ago. Missed ya last year Mike, hope you can make it in '07.

Pardon my ignorance about that kind of fishing, are they off the coast of California, or do you have to go elsewhere, like farther sourh off the Mexican borders?
Title: Re: Any interest?
Post by: Topcat on December 22, 2006 - 03:28:47 PM
I actually caught one off the coast of Hawaii a few years back. There are many species of Barracudas around the world. I believe the biggest species is the one in the earlier picture. They're usually caught off Florida.

But the trophy I'm looking for looks like this.

It's called a Gar. They live almost forever. I've heard of them being over 100 years old. Texas is known for having them and I'm sure there are other states down there that have them too. That one is a monster!!

I used to pull them out of the rivers in Kansas. Not worth a darn for eatin, but they give you a heck of a fight! :2thumbs:

I've snagged onto a couple small gars out of our local river too, but man thankfully never anything close to that size. If TC would not have ID'd it in his post I would have guessed it to be a sturgeon, now those ane like prehistoric, they can live for years upon years. But like  Heminut said, not somthing you'd want to take home for lunch however  :roflsmiley:
