Congratulations! Let’s Mount that Fish!
Fish Mounts these days are hand-crafted using 100% man-made materials. Taxidermists rarely use the actual fish. To create your mount, all that we need from you is the species and the approximate size. Photos (optional and if available) may also be used to “Authenticate” your mount. That means using your pictures to match the coloration and markings so that your mount looks as strikingly beautiful and colorful as your fish. It’s that simple and easy.
If you want yours Lit-Up, you’ve come to the right place. You can even order your mount online, right now! Or, you can order by phone/email. Having a trophy fish on the wall is a great way to commemorate a first, or a once-in-a-lifetime catch. It’s a must-have for the successful angler.
We are experts at what we do!
Below are some of our most popular replica fish mounts:
Each one demonstrates the detail and vibrant color you will find in YOUR mount!

The best in the business hands down. They led the charge for fish conservation with release mounts instead of skin mounts. The Billfish Foundation is proud to have them as the longest standing Tag & Release Program sponsor.
At King Sailfish, It’s All About the “Look” of Your Mount!
We believe that the most important aspect of your mount is the final painting. We consider our products to be in-a-way, works of art. Have you ever noticed how bright and colorful a lit-up fish can be — especially when it makes it’s first jump out of the water? This is the “look” that our artists are always striving to achieve. In our studio you will find a variety of transparent lacquers, pearls and irridesents and even a few hot colors that we use to bring your trophy mount to life. The painting is our daily challenge — it’s our passion!
Authentication: That’s what makes it “Your Fish”.
Since sportsmen are no longer having the actual skins mounted, the painting is what makes it “Your Fish”. Our artists will refer to your photo and will incorporate similar color patterns and markings into each mount, to give it that personal touch. No two mounts are exactly alike. If you don’t have a good photo, that’s perfectly okay. Because each of our artists’ ‘default setting’ is always to airbrush your mount to be strikingly colorful, beautiful and impressive….and we definitely know how to do that!

“SPORTFISH REPLICAS” by King Sailfish Mounts. An economical alternative designed to reduce cost, yet still have the same visual impact. Also referred to as “Low Profile” or “Half-Sided Fish Mounts”, only the front side of the mount is produced, thus eliminating the labor and material costs associated with producing the back side of the mount.
Being one of the first fish mount companies to encourage sportsmen to take a photo of their catch and then to release their fish alive, King Sailfish Mounts has long been a pioneer in ocean conservation.
King Sailfish Mounts was formed, in part, due to concerns over populations of Atlantic Sailfish in Florida offshore waters. For decades Sailfish and other species had been traditionally boated for photos and to be mounted. As a result, Sailfish were becoming more difficult to catch. Even though taxidermists had developed methods for mounting trophy fish that did not require any part of the actual fish, taxidermy sales agents on the docks were reluctant to inform their customers that they could release their fish and still have a replica made. Founder Raymond Douglas saw this a business opportunity. These days nearly every fish mount produced in Florida and in the USA is based on a release.
First class operation with a fine product. Doug and the crew at KSM have been very supportive of the WPBFC, as both organizations have conservation oriented backgrounds, promoting the ethical angling practice of catch and release.
MARINE ARTIST RAYMOND DOUGLAS
Marine Artist Raymond Douglas is the founder of King Sailfish Mounts, of Fort Lauderdale. Douglas began producing replica fish mounts as a commitment to preserving memories, while at the same time promoting conservation of the resources. Douglas believes that releasing the fish is the perfect way to pay tribute to a memorable day of fishing. While some taxidermists still produce skin mounts, King Sailfish specializes in producing a fiberglass fish replica.
The fact that it is not necessary to kill a fish to have it mounted has finally been embraced by the greater angling public.

I patronize King Sailfish not only for their dedication to marine conservation, but also for their lifelike details and finishes. They are unquestionably the very best in the business.
