I will put the date back on my camera.

Caught it late morning today just after thunder and rain, Bait-Furry thing with big hooks, got drunk the night before, Where-caught him in the upper jaw.

I hope that pins it down.

Thank you so much for those details....better keep your day job Guiding 'cause you'll never make it as an author of Tall Tales.

The fish is a beauty (and a great pic too). My Dad always said "it's good fishing after the rain" and once again he is proved right.

Keep makin' me jealous with more pics please!

Very nice Muskie, Col Ron but you've got to stop teasing me like this. I've given up on my home 'Ski lake here due to boat traffic morning, noon and night. Boat and gear are starting to be loaded slowly in anticipation. I hope the weather I see in the background of your picture holds for a while but we'll see. Keep up the good work. Bob

Your time is coming soon Bob. Hope you snag several like the one Col got, or bigger! Don't forget your camera.

Meanga,

I catch a decent fish, post the picture and now I need a date on the dang thing. I don't lie about my second favorite thing to do.....It happened today, at 8:15am.

Yep, fishing isn't everything...but it sure is ahead of whatever is third.

Now, what language is Meanga?

All I know is to sprecken ze "hum-a-na, hum-a-na".

Since I don't sprecken ze Italiano, my guess would be "mangia".
Don't ask me how to spell "la gots".

It was 40" I really think it maybe the same fish that my client/friend caught a week before. Ron

Another good argument for catch and release then. Nice chunky fish, that's for sure. Wouldn't be surprising to catch the same aggressive fish more than once in summer if you fish the same areas.

On a related note... my wife always tells that she thinks I catch the same fish over and over again when I'm bass fishing at the lake next to our house. I could walk all around the lake, catching a bunch of bass that are all similar in size... and she still thinks the same fish just keeps following me around the lake. Biting the same lure over and over again. Rolling Eyes
