    Pacific Sailfish Overview

    Pacific Sailfish occur in tropical and subtropical waters near land masses, usually in depths of over 100 feet, but occasionally are caught from ocean piers close to shore. Pelagic and migratory, sailfish usually travel alone or in small groups. Its outstanding feature is the high first dorsal fin which is cobalt blue with a scattering of round dark spots. Its fighting ability and spectacular aerial aerobatics endear the Sailfish to the saltwater angler. It becomes exhausted quickly and therefore Sailfish are considered a light-tackle species.

    Sailfish are released alive by sportsmen and charter captains alike. For mounting purposes, nearly 100 percent of all sailfish mounts are “release mounts” — produced without using the actual fish or any parts thereof.

World record information can be obtained from the International Game Fish Association, and you can visit their website by going to www.igfa.org.

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”!
