Tarpon can be caught both in the ocean and in inshore intracoastal waterways, back country estuaries and even hybrid water canals and rivers. Normally the smaller tarpon are found in these backwater areas. Our Tarpon fish mounts are anatomically correct fish replicas that are intended to be displayed on the wall. Everything you see while the fish mount is hanging on the wall is painted.
All of our two sided Tarpon 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. If you are purchasing a Tarpon full mount to commemorate a catch, we encourage you to send a picture of your catch. We custom paint our Tarpon full mounts and we even custom paint our eyes to give a realistic look to your new trophy. Our production team even takes the time to notch out rips and tears that your Tarpon might have. For customers who do not have a photograph or are just purchasing for decoration, our normal process is to paint a brownish and gold back with hues of green which blend to a silvery side and white belly.
Our Tarpon half mounts are 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.
