Our Cobia fish mounts are anatomically correct fish replicas that are intended to be displayed on the wall. Cobia are pelagic fish that primarily migrate up and down the coasts of Florida through Texas searching for easy prey and ready to bounce on any baitfish that gets in its way. Cobia also have a keen ability to follow manta rays, sting rays and bull sharks and lazily eat scraps of baitfish from the sharks and crabs and crustaceans kicked up by the wings of the rays.
All of our two sided Cobia full mounts are made of fiberglass for a lifetime of enjoyment and are hand crafted to represent the fish you caught or to showcase the fishes alive and lit up look as if it was swimming in the ocean. Everything you see while the fish mount is hanging on the wall is painted. The backside of the mount that is touching the wall or not viewable is actually painted black. These two sided wall mounts are not intended to be hung from the ceiling.
Our Cobia half mounts are produced by using the front part of a two sided wall mount, full mount, mold. Only the front have is cast so the there is not a backside as there is when we produce a full mount. This method saves time and materials and we pass this savings on to you. The texture and finishing process on a half mount is the same as a full mount. Most of the backside of a full mount is normally not viewable when put on the wall anyway, so some customers choose to save the money and purchase half mounts for decoration.
Our Cobia 3D fish mounts are intended to be suspended from the ceiling and are completely finished on all sides for 360 degree viewing. 3D fish mount replicas are suspended by attaching either a heavy monofilament, string or light gauge wire to small holes in the top dorsal fin and top portion of the tail and when necessary we will include an eye hole screw in the head portion of the replica. This allows for easy and quick installation of the taxidermy mount. Pedestal mounting is an available option, this add on is necessary when using our products for addition to signs, displays or other interior or outdoor use. Pricing for the pedestal option is based on a per project basis.
