Default Muskie Hater Apologizes

Killing fish for fun is not looked on as a good thing, around Michigan.
But I had a pretty good chuckle at the title.

The video doesn't load for me.

I'm guessing killing them is a no no.

So you just fish for them and let them go?

They're trophy fish, and very hard to land. But nobody eats them and they're not endangered, exactly, but have small populations, so catching one, killing it, and throwing it back is actually a crime, if I'm not mistaken.

All my fresh water fishing friends are "catch and release".
My favorite reason is from Barry "With catch and release the stories are much better".

They can be kept, if they are legal size. And if it's the season.
Big fish make lots of little fish.
I catch and release, most of the time. Walleyes are keepers, as are trout.
The rest are just for the adrenaline rush. Nothing like catching a nice sized fish on light tackle.
I have not caught a muskie, but have caught big pike.
Had a 26 inch catfish take me for a Nantucket Sleigh Ride, in my kayak, last summer.
