58" White Marlin Half Mount
58" White Marlin Half Mount
This white marlin fish mount is part of our half sided series and replicates juvenile that was measured at 58 inches before shaping into the classic pose. It takes up roughly 56 inches from left to right on the wall and about 20 inches of vertical height. A half sided mount is produced by casting the front part of our two sided wall mount molds. When displayed the circumference of the half mount is either touching the wall or very close to the wall. This process cuts labor and supplies cost and therefore results in a lower price point however the skin texture and finishing process is the same as a traditional full mount.
White Marlin Paint Schedule
Sometimes our customers ask us to paint their new white marlin mount to look like the picture of the marlin they caught. We can certainly do so if you have a picture but we advise you think about a couple things first. The picture you most likely have is either after the marlin has been pulled into the boat or back at the dock. It is a common understanding that white marlin's coloring change during the fight and once they have exerted all that energy attempting to get away from you, they begin to lose their coloring turning very dark blues, browns and blacks. We suggest you allow our artists to paint the white marlin with the vivid, electric blue colorings that almost appear to be neon. We can also paint any size mount to look like any of the white marlin mounts you see on our website. The final step is to apply UV Protectant Urethane clear coat allowing you to decorate indoors or outside.
Once you place your order, our packaging team will carefully package this fish mount to ensure a safe journey from us to you. We are proud to boast a less than 1% damage rate but should for any reason this fish mount arrive to you less that 100% perfect, please let us know right away and we will remedy the situation accordingly. A couple of the smaller sized white marlin mounts will ship regular ground shipping but the larger white marlin replicas have to be crated and then shipped on a freight truck. Over the years we have developed the perfect crating system that provides enough protection to provide a safe transit from our place to yours without having to create a solid plywood framed crated which would be extremely heavy and extremely expensive to ship. Instead our crating system utilizes 1x4 furring strips with angle braces and 2 ply cardboard which delivers a lightweight crate with superior protection. Please contact our experienced team ahead of placing your order if you would like to obtain a rate quote to see the cost of shipping prior to your purchase.
White Marlin Mount Installation Process
Our easy to hang bracket arrives already attached to the backside, balance point of this fish mount. After removing this fish mount from the packaging, hold up the fish mount up on the wall where you would like it to live and then mark the spot where the hanger is on the wall. Then drill in a screw or hammer in a nail and the bracket will easily hang on the nail or screw head. Here at our shop we use two screws about 3" apart from each other so that the resined hanger can hang on both screws which keeps the fish mount from having any chance of pivoting in anyway. We also have the ability to attach an outdoor hanger to the interior of the backside of the replica. If you are interested in having this add on option included please notify us during the order process or after placing your order so we can add this to your invoice.

More About White Marlin:
White Marlin are a species of billfish that live in the epipelagic zone of the subtropical and tropical Atlantic Ocean. They are normally found between the latitudes of 45°north and 45°south in depths deeper than 300'. White Marlin normally stay close to the surface of the water and are commonly found above banks, shoals, and canyons but venture into deep blue water as well. White marlin are considered a medium sized billfish.
Some of their key characteristics are a rounded dorsal, pectoral and anal fin. They also have a distinctive forked tail. The dorsal fin is the most pronounced feature of the white marlin as it extends all the way along its back and raised much higher than other marlins which normally consists of 29 to 45 rays. White Marlin are normally a darker blue coloring on their backs above the lateral line with a predominant break to a milky silvery white and hint of yellow flank, however when lit up and attacking baitfish they can turn completely dark on their flanks with electric looking vertical bands.
Like other billfish white marlin use their bills to slash at fish and then come back to eat the injured fish. White Marlins have one nickname of "Sneaky White" because they are known to slide into a trolling fisherman's spread and steel the bait before being seen. Avid White Marlin fishing teams remain extremely focused on watching the waters behind the boat when dragging baits for this species.
If you have caught a white marlin you deserve to relive that moment over and over and we would love to hear from you. Give us a call and lets put a white marlin fish mount on your wall so you can commemorate that special days for many years to come.
