Grouper MountsGrouper are notoriously known for their keen ability to make a grown man cry. The learning curve on grouper fishing is never kind and normally begins with many a curse word and many broken leaders. Groupers make their homes in holes, ledges, wrecks and other structured habitat providing themselves with protection and lookout areas to sabotage their next un-expecting prey.
Some of our grouper mounts are classified as Quick Production mounts. So what are quick production mounts? Quick production mounts are some of the more popular size and specie grouper mounts we sell. We cast the blanks for these mounts ahead of time and in groups allowing us to be more efficient and cost effective. We pass these savings and quicker production times along to you, thus the reason for some larger mounts being less expensive and having faster turnaround times then a smaller size which we have to make from scratch.
Depending on the sub specie of grouper they can look completely different from other groupers. If you are looking to commemorate a catch with one of our grouper mounts then we suggest providing a picture of your catch so we can paint your new grouper replica to look just like your fish. Should you not have a picture or just looking to use a grouper mount as decoration then our artists will paint the grouper as if it was alive and swimming underwater.
We also hand paint our eyes to give the grouper mount a lifelike eye. Not many fish mount companies take the time to hand paint their eyes, more common is for them to just use a standard gold glass eye or just paint the iris a particular solid color but we add multiple layers of colors and patterns to give depth and realism to the eye.
Shipping Ground or CratingDepending on the size of the grouper it can either be shipped regular ground or if it is larger then it must be crated and shipping on a freight truck. If it is shipping on a freight truck our crating and packaging department is extremely experienced in assembling a crate that is sturdy yet not so heavy to where the shipping costs become outrageous. If you are interested in a larger grouper mount and our online store cannot return a live rate and would like to obtain a rate quote prior to purchasing you may email us with your ship to zip code and the product you are interested in and we will reply with the cost. Most freight carriers also give a discount for shipping to a commercial location, which we pass along to you. If you do decide to place your order before acquiring a rate quote, we will contact you with total cost delivered before we process any payment.
Installing Your New Grouper Mount
Your new grouper mount will arrive to you with an easy to hang bracket on the backside of the grouper replica. With two people to help you, hold the mount up on the wall, mark the spot where the bracket touches the wall, drill in a screw or hammer in a nail and then hang your new replica. The "easy level" bracket will allow you to position the mount parallel to the ground or pivoted so that the grouper mount is either swimming up your wall or down your wall. The choice is yours! We do suggest using a drywall anchor if you cannot locate a stud to drill or hammer into.
