Weight: Walleyes grow to about 80 cm (31 in) in length, and weigh up to about 9 kg (20 lb).
Location & Habitat: Native to the north of North America, as far south as New Mexico and Tennessee it has been transplanted to waters all over the US and the world.
Description: Walleye are the largest member of the perch family. Large, glassy, opaque eyes give it its name Dark olive brown to golden brown body may be splotched with lighter colors. The dorsal fin maybe streaked, blotched or palin, but lacks clear spots and there is big blotch at the back edge, distinguising it from a sauger.
The common name, "walleye", comes from the fact that the fish's eyes point outward, as if looking at the walls. This externally facing orientation of the eyes gives anglers an advantage in the dark because there is a certain eyeshine given off by the eye of the walleye in the dark, similar to that of lions and other night dwelling animals. This "eyeshine" is the result of a light-gathering layer in the eyes called the tapetum lucidum, which allows the fish to see well in low-light conditions.
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]
