    Schoolmaster Snapper Overview

    The Schoolmaster Snapper occurs in the Atlantic from Massachusetts to Brazil and is very common throughout Florida, the Bahamas and the Caribbean. Schoolmasters can be found along mangrove shorelines on out to the reef. It is a colorful fish with bright yellow fins and tail, often with vertical stripes and a blue pinstripe just below the eye on the face. The lower portions are more silver than the usual white or pearl coloration of many snappers. Smaller in size, the I.G.F.A. All-Tackle World Record for Schoolmaster snappers is 13-pounds, 4-ounces, caught in Key Largo, the Florida Keys.

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”!
