ok, maybe i should read everything instead of just looking at the fish. That is the great fisherman in you. I caught 4 muskies last year.49 1/2, 48, 38 and a 32 and let them all go. I want a 50+ or better for my wall
My question is, if that is blood on its side and it was bleeding from the gills, should he have kept it b/c it wasn't going to make it. Its hard to tell from a picture though whether that's blood from the gills, from where the hooks were in its mouth, or something else.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
