I caught my first muskie today. 33" on a white spinnerbait while bass fishing. It hit about 10 yards from the boat. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pictures, it's all I had.

Mods, feel free to move to off topic if you don't feel it belongs in the hunting section.

I do believe that the minium is 42" to keep a muskie, that's just a baby. :P

Who wants to go swimming? :twisted:

Thats a cute lil fish, nice muskie.

From my experience muskie fishing they are more of a trophy fish (when they get a lot bigger) then a eater, but everyone has their preference.

Any Northern or Musky over 10 lbs isn't worth eating.

True, and why eat a fish full of bones when you can have a walleye (the filet mignon of fish!)?
