    This is a World Record size BlackBelly Rosefish we produced for our client. He caught the fish in 500 feet of water bottom fishing. We get some interesting mounts, It makes the job fun! Thanks guys for all the help with the photo download info., big pat on the back to my bud Travis! God Bless, David

    Thank you for the positive comments. It is a labor of love when you work on your client's trophy. The scenery is a compacted sand marl from south Florida. I clear coat it heavy and set the mounts on clear acrylic rods. The shells are added and one additional coat of gloss is added. It makes a nice solid base and holds up very well. thanks again everyone. God Bless, David
