Nice Muskie! Never caught one but would release if I did. Heard they are poor for tablefare just like a pike..

Nice fish! I'd have to release it as well, but definitely get a replica mount of it. As for eating it...no thanks, but I will say PIKE are awesome fish to eat if cooked properly and if you have the right guy who knows how to fillet them!

x3 with the release--I would of taken pics and measurements and had a replica made--But if it's legal and a keeper and they keep it--I say Congrats on the catch!!

I have to say I would have released it too. That picture sure doesn't do that fish any justice. It looks a little small to be 52" based on my experiances.

You can't get em from the couch.
