Just moved into a new house and thinking about hanging the two bass mounts I have out under a covered patio. They won't get rained on, just would be exposed to varying Temps throughout the year.

Any concerns I should have about putting them out there?

Thanks in advance!

Yeah no good buy the wooden ones that are painted or some type of fishing signs. Been into some old restaraunts and seem them outside. They tend to wear quickly

If they're replicas I bet they'd be fine on a covered patio.

Skins mounts will deteriorate very quickly. Replicas will hold up if built right.
Also replicas need to be painted and clearcoated with UV protected paint and clear.
If not done right Replicas will peel and blister especially in the sun.
