    Largemouth Bass Overview

    World Record: The current world record is an impressive 22.311-lb bass caught in Lake Biwa in Japan. This is the largest recorded largemouth bass ever caught, and what makes the catch even more impressive is the low number of largemouth in Japan. Introduced for bass fishing, they quickly became an invasive species, devastating native ecosystems in only a few lakes. The angler, Manabu Kurita, caught the fish on a Deps Slide Swimmer 175 in 2009. He recently tied his record in 2022.

    USA Record: The current all waterbody United States record is George Perry’s famous world record, largemouth, caught during the Great Depression, on June 2, 1932, in Lake Montgomery, South Georgia. This nearly century old record is the most sought-after sportfishing record in the world. This Georgia native tipped the scales at 22 lbs 4 oz.

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”!
