king sailfish fish mounts

Rate this topic

Do any of you guys have mounts from this place and if so, what do you think? Also, while I know that the actual caught fish isn't involved in these mounts (presumably you either released the fish or ate it), do they work off pictures and actual measurements of the fish you caught or do you just get a 'generic' version of the species in question?

yes I have used them. They did a 30lb Chinnouk Salmon (sp)for me a couple of years ago. I came out amazing. This fish was caught in NY and as such has a bronze coloration to it. The chinnouks (sp)they usually mount are on the silver side.This presented a challange for them. They put their best painter on it who happens t be the owner. Took alittle longer but heart.gif it. I will now use them exclusively. You have to take several good pics from several angles along with length,girth, wt and send them this info. I also point out any distinguishing marks the fish may have......good luck lets see some pics when you get it back. What are you mounting?

Actually, I don't have anything currently. But I'm heading down to FL in July and depending on what I catch, I might want something as a keepsake.

 

Anyway, I've always said that the next nice striper, big blue or albie on the fly, I would have it mounted - but inevitably, I almost always release these fish unless it can't swim away...and even then, I usually find someone to give the fish to. So this might be a nice alternative...as well as buy me some additional time to decide if I'd want a mount without having to kill the fish.

 

Basically I asked the question because I saw an add for them this morning and it piqued my interest. I'm glad to hear your salmon came out the way you liked. Thankssmile.gif
