I stopped by Mike's shop today and had the camera so I took a few pictures of the 60 lb bounty Bass he was doing for, (sorry the name slips at the moment) It's still not fishing yet but the fish looks very nice! I think he's doing another Striper bounty again. He'll be on later to post the rest of the details. Nice job Mike!

Bri,
If you ever get the chance to get up this way call me & I'll take you over to his shop.

BTW, I might be mistaken but I think all the work that's in the pavilion on IBSP are all done by Mike.

I think once the fish is done, Bill Donovan will be stopping over to take some professional pictures and post them on here.

Hey all, the first 60lber is finished!! Congrats to 'Bass Barn" member Bob Cummings on a spectacular catch and also thank's from us to put faith in 'Coastal' with his fish of a lifetime. The casting came out wonderful with amazing detail and a nice soft curve, so good in fact that I may use it in the NTA 's replica division. Bob will be taking delivery of his piece complete with a 'bunker' on a redwood slab pedestal base. Bill Donavan will post pics of the 'prototype' piece soon, stay tuned. Harbor nights, your WR "Blueline" Is also very nice, very detailed with a big fat belly and defined "meatlines" along the sides. I'm making my working molds off of these fish this coming week. 2-3 weeks from now you'll get the finished work! Thank's to all who tried for last years "coastal" Bounty and remember, this year , same deal, but it's got to be an '80' or over. It's out there so get out there! LOL, [email protected]
