Caught my first Musky this morning while Bass fishing on Salt Fork Lake. I posted the story in the Southeastern Ohio forum, but the purpose of this post is to ask a few questions. The only measuring device on my boat is a bumper board for measuring tournament bass, so I didn't have anything long enough to measure this fish. I was going to measure it relative to a fishing rod, but I was too worried about getting it back into the water. Based on the pictures and measuring relative to my body, the fish should be somewhere between 36" and 42". (I think its closer to 36, dad is thinking more towards 42). Again, no way to measure girth, but maybe you guys can give me some kind of weight estimate based on the pictures and your numerous encounters. I also would like to know about some of the injuries this fish had. I haven't uploaded the pictures yet, but it had a couple chunks out of one side of its body. I didn't investigate them enough to tell if they were a bite or a prop encounter, but they were each about 2" across. Also, this fish had a messed up mouth. On one side of its lower jaw, it had swelled 'gums' and was missing some teeth. It was also bleeding from somewhere around the mouth, you can see the blood on my gloves. Anyway, just wanted to get your thoughts at least on the weight. Thanks!
