This is a pelagic, schooling fish that generally feeds near the surface. Its diet consists of small fishes, squid, crustaceans, and plankton. An excellent light tackle species, it can be taken by trolling or casting small baits or lures, including ballyhoo, mullet and other small fishes as well as strip baits, spoons, feathers, jigs, or plugs; or by live bait fishing from boats at the surface of deep waters one to two miles offshore. It has some local commercial importance, but is predominantly an angler's fish. It is a spunky game species and the flesh is of good quality and flavor
Fish Molding Process
We have and continue to travel the world to make our one of a kind molds as they are a vital part in order to handcraft the most popular fish mounts on the market. Our patented molds are then used to create the various fish models from which we can reproduce the life-like fish trophy mounts.
We do not extend, shorten or modify an existing model to fulfill an order. Instead we use one of the over 10,000 models of various sizes and species available. And we can ofcourse customize the mount to fulfill your needs and we are confident that we can build your custom fish mount regardless of inch increment or fish species.
We build one fish at a time to match the length, girth, and all of the specific characteristics and details only YOUR FISH displays. [Complete Molding Process]
