Congratulations to my brother Eric on a fine catch! A 48 inch 25 lb. musky.
Where did he catch it?
Right in the lip! lol
He said his bait was laying in it's mouth sideways right between the two bigger teeth.
You know those fisherman ... can't divulge too much information.
This one sure had small teeth ... I wonder why? Maybe it was a big for it's age youngster. I really don't know anything about aging fish or really to care to know that information. I'm just happy for my brother on such a fine catch and can't wait until the night he said he was going to have us over for stuffed musky on the grill. I haven't had a meal of that for years. Probably about 15 years ago when my brother in law Jeff used to fish musky and grilled one up one day when we were camping.
Have you ever been bitten by a musky? I have ... and trust me ... it's not a very fun situation when you're swimming across a river and have one come up and take a swipe at your thigh ... decides you're way too big for a meal ... but still leaves scrape marks with it's teeth ... leaves you bleeding like a stuck pig ... and you still have half a river's width to navigate. Dah Da Dah Dah .... Dah Da Dah Dah ... the theme music from Jaws is echoing in your brain ... also you have a 12 year old kid swimming with you who just minutes before said, "Aunt Mel, could we get bit by a musky swimming across the river?" and I just finished telling him the odds of that are like getting hit by lightning.
Until next time ....
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
