If so our skilled artists will identify any unique characteristics in the photo which are later reflected in the completed paint scheme.

Goggle Eyes make excellent live bait for live bait fishing in Miami. They are a favorite live bait of sailfish, marlin and big kingfish. They also make excellent bait when bottom fishing for amberjack, grouper, snapper and cobia. Some people catch their own goggle eyes for bait in the very early morning hours, often just offshore of the beaches. During fishing tournaments, sailfish tournaments, kingfish tournaments and other fishing tournaments, goggle eyes are often purchased for live bait by boats competing in the tournaments.
