i saw a 3' muskie floating the riprap on hoover a few weeks ago. this heat has been atrocious to fish, both for the anglers and the fish. glad we've got some cooler weather for a short while.

And a very knowledgeable fisherman friend of mine seen 2 on the end of a laydown a few years ago. I joked an told him they was gar. But he knows the difference an I'm certain he seen what he thinks he seen...
To bad it didnt make it.

Even though we may not know how that fish ended up where it was, I think that this is a great opportunity to talk about how we can do our best to keep fish healthy if we are going to try and fool them into biting sharp metal objects. This is an important read if you care about that:

Another thing worth mentioning is going "barbless". We all have our own thoughts and ideas about fishing, which is what makes this such a great resource for all of us. In my own experience, flattening the barbs of my hooks has sure made it easier on the fish after I catch them. Sure, if you plan on eating your catch and you are especially hungry, keeping those barbs on likely helps a bit.

It is important to ask ourselves why we go fishing in the first place, if these considerations towards fish, and their environment, aren't important to us.
