Best part of catching a hog.........is watching it swim away to make someone else's day! (and make more fishes!).

Cheers,

I don't "fish and tell"....so not saying where I got this brute. I will tell you a little story though. The lake this guy was caught on...I happened to run into a local cottage owner. We got to chatting about fishing, and I told him I was going out for Muskie. He responded with "I hope you keep them". To my surprise, I said, "oh no sir, only fish for sport...back they go for someone else". He then looked at me with that look your dad used to give you when you came in past your curfew and said "well that's too bad cause they are demolishing the other fish I try to catch. I usually keep all of them slimy bastards, and use them for fertilizer". He then sped off in his little 12ft aluminum looking all disgruntled.

I am not one to rant, especially on a fishing board that should be positive....but it's thinking like this that really urks me. This guy was thinking more about his stocked freezer full of his precious walleye rather than the ecology of a huge system of fish in HIS home lake. My stance on this is let the natural selection process run it's course, and don't try to play God and help it along on your own agenda. There are those that enjoy catching a huge fish...some say it's a bucket list experience, others watch a kid reel in a huge fish and see the joy and excitement it brings them. It's sad that we have this kind of thinking and short sightedness around still. Not ragging on the "older folks" on this forum, but this guy had to be upwards of 65 to 70 yrs old. Muskie are not as common as some other species of fish...we don't need them to be killed for no reason! Fish of 1000 casts!

I hope that all of you on here will take away from this story a simple lesson. When you run into people like this, if you can't educate them on things, feel sorry for them. They truly must not be very happy with themselves and have the blinders on when it comes to an ecosystem and how it works. I guess they don't want their children to enjoy what they have been for decades.

Cheers all.....sniff...sniff.....(lol).

I would bet that your Muskie isn't killing as many fish as the abandoned nets and ice fishing city. My son is finally able to come out fishing with me and we appreciate benefits of catch and release. Congrats on a great fish.

My only comment would be that the old fella with his opinions and actions is also nature taking its course. Not saying I agree or disagree but that we are apart of nature as much as the Muskie and the more we realize this the better off for us, the walleye, and the muskie. Cheers
