As most of you know, I was the lucky one to catch a 60 lb striper last fall and took Coastal Fish Mounts up on the offer of a free mount. Well I picked up my bass yesterday and just wanted everybody to know about my experience with Mike at Coastal. I have had a lot of mounts done over the years, some good, some not so good - so you really don't know what you'll end up with. Well let me tell you that when I saw my fish I was amazed at the natural pose, the lifelike colors and overall presentation of the fish about to swallow a bunker. Mike has an amazing talent and I was very lucky to have him do my fish of a lifetime. He will do all my fish in the future and he should do all of your as well. Mike was great to work with and really captures the fish as we see them in nature. My fish is on a stand and will sit atop my television for years to come and for all to see. My many thanks to Mike for his efforts and his talents.

Bob,
I'm really glad to hear you liked the fish! I was there through the whole process with Mike and i got to see it through! Really cool! Mike is one hell of a guy & a real class act! If any of you get the chance you should stop by his shop!

I just picked up Jim Murrays World record Blueline Tilefish. Mike does really nice work!

I wish I would have had the chance to take some pics of your Bass.

WOW, that tilefish looks AMAZING! B.C., take some pics of your Striper for us to drool over! Where is Coastal Fish Mounts? LOL, not that I honestly expect to catch anything "mount-worthy" in the near future, but it's good to know just in case! I'm doing some sweetwater fishing in a couple of weeks in a Blue Ribbon stretch of the Lackawanna Rvr for trout, and also going to be hitting a lake w/ some massive Walleye. So who knows, maybe I will need him soon :cool:

Thanks again :cool:
North Whales,
That's real close, right down Welsh Rd rt 63. If you come down rt 63 make a right onto Fitzwatertown rd Mike's shop is after you cross over Susquehanna Rd on the right after you cross over a small creek.

Yo guys, Thanks for all the compliments and also to Bob Cummings . He was a pleasure to work with and provided "Coastal" one of the best molds of a Striped Bass anywhere. Again, Congrat's on that fish! Remember, this fall, the world record is gonna be broken,and "Coastal" want's to do that fish.There are fish in the triple digits out there! The "Striped Ones" are coming, are you ready? Go get 'em. [email protected]
