    Blue Marlin Overview

    A migratory and pelagic species, Blue Marlin occur in tropical and warm oceanic temperate waters. It is found in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. Blue Marlin apparently grow larger in the Pacific. All giant marlins are females and male blues rarely reach over 300 pounds. The pectoral fins of the blue marlin are not rigid, and can be folded against the side of the body, opposed to the rigid fins of the black marlin. There are no spots on the fins. A powerful and aggressive fighter, Blue Marlin run long and hard, sound deep and leap high into the air with seemingly un-exhaustable strength. Nearly all sport fishermen release blue marlin alive and unharmed, and choose a release mount to commemorate that once-in-a-lifetime experience. Consider booking a Blue Marlin fishing trip with Tropic Star Lodge.

    The single most important visual aspect of the blue marlin mount is the eye. The eye of the blue marlin has a piercing look which you can actually “feel”. This must be replicated in order for the mount to look authentic.

Custom Fish Mount - FAQ

What is a Release Mount?

A Release Mount is a mount of your trophy fish produced without any of the actual fish parts. Almost all saltwater mounts are Release Mounts, which are constructed of lightweight composite materials and are cast from pre-existing molds. These mold impressions were originally taken from carefully selected fish. Your authentic mount is hand-painted and one-of-a-kind.

How long will my mount take to create?

Normal lead time is 4 to 6 weeks. Expedite Service is available on most mounts as an add-on. Each task requires precision workmanship and must pass final inspection before moving on to the next process. You can rest assured that no compromises are ever taken in the production of your custom mount.

How are mounts attached to the wall?

It hangs like a picture. A sturdy hanger comes balanced and installed in each mount. All that is required is a screw or nail to be inserted into the wall. Our lightweight mounts are produced using hollow-cast fiberglass. For outdoor locations, we offer a 2-piece stainless steel hanging bracket system that is extra strong and burgular-resistant.

Are real fish still being used?

No. The marine taxidermy industry produces 99% of all mounts using composite materials. The change from “Skin” to “Composite Mounts” occurred in the 70’s and 80’s, and has not been well publicized. After measurements and photographs are taken, release your fish alive and order a “Release Mount”!
