Speaking of Oatman I bought this at the antique store in Oatman. Taxidermy is my only weakness and this is an impressive fish.
The odd thing is that the plaque claims it was a 10 pound fish but this fish is over 30" and would be at least 20 pounds. It is a big fish by the way. Probably whoever made the plaque made a mistake and id didn't seem important to fix it. Odd considering the cost of preserving a fish like this.
As for my skill as an angler I have none. I have never caught a fish although I have tried. I was on a fishing boat where everyone caught their limit and I had nothing. Will stick to antiquing.
