Tautog, also known as Blackfish, are a tricky fish to catch due to them living near rocks and structures where lines can get snagged on.
All of our two sided Tautog 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 Tautog full mount to commemorate a catch, we encourage you to send a picture of your catch. We custom paint our Tautog 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 Tautog might have. For customers who do not have a photograph or are just purchasing for decoration, our normal process is to paint a standard tautog with brown and dark olive.
Our Tautog 3D 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 a eyehole screw in the head portion of the replica. This allows for easy and quick installation. 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.
