    Common Snook Overview

    Snook occur in the western Atlantic and Caribbean Sea from south Florida and Texas to Brazil. Six species of snook occur in the Atlantic and six in the Pacific. None occur in both oceans. A saltwater fish, snook occasionally inhabit fresh water, usually in search of food. The back of the snook may vary from silver to dark brown. The most distinguishing feature of the snook is a dark line that runs along the middle of the back on both sides from gill cover to the base of the tail. It is closely related to the Nile perch and barramundi. The snook is an excellent table fish with a white flaky meat. Info provided by of The International Game Fish Association.

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”!
