Largemouth Bass Mailbox
Should be recalled
Very poor product. Description says its made out of "practically indestructible material made to withstand weather" ....We had our mailbox up only 4 months and the paint was peeling. We only saw reviews that others had problem with this after it was too late. It should be sprayed with protective coating from manufacturer before hand since that is what they advertise in description and due to the fact that so many people are having problems with the paint peeling, the manufacturer should recall these and replace with a new one that is protected. VERY SAD that this costs $100 and is such a poor product.

I bought this as a gift for an avid fisherman. In a short period of time the eyes popped off, then the gills began to flake off, then the mouth began to rust. This product was not meant for its true purpose - outdoor mailbox. Keep it hung in your collection case indoors. Disappointing since I was so excited to give the gift, embarrassing that it didn't hold up at all.

Looks great !!
Got this for my husband for Christmas. After reading the reviews about the paint flaking off, he just got some polyurethane spray clear coat, sprayed a couple light coats to protect it. It's now held up through a couple snow storms, freezing rain and sleet and it looks great !! Everybody loves it!

second mailbox purchase
this is the second Largemouth Bass mailbox i have purchased from Bass Pro. no complaint except for the fact that you must coat with clear outdoor polyurethane paint for the finish to last. i think this should be done at the manufacturer as the boxes are intended for outdoor use
