Thanks, Mark. Every pond in every cow pasture down here has a few fish that big or bigger in it. I wish I had caught her in the spring, since she would have been fat and probably been pushing 9#. She was a little skinny....
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

25.5lb Lake Michigan King caught on a .30 oz walleye crank wading downtown Chicago. Nice fight.

I catch more musky by accident on bass baits than I do when actually targeting them with musky baits. How big are those Muskies in your pictures?

Everybody does. It's somewhere in the 90% + range on the number of muskie caught while specifically targetting other species.
The skis range from that November big noy of high 40's down the 37". Skiling obviously not measured .
60% of my muskie this year came on 'small' baits and the rest on bladed baits I make.
