Keep in mind that I am always looking for images for our newsletter; fish, sunsets, sunrises, other anglers fishing, equipment, anything fishing related. I can use them all.  Large, unedited images are best. Thanks.

"I've got pics of the 62" fish from the 12 foot boat. The kid is claiming he measured it to 54". It's a big beautiful fish with a big head. I'm guessing 47-50 but certainly short of 54 and 62..... well yea."

86 ",165lbs aw wait that was my hammerhead. never over 50", few 50's, not that many 49"s tons of 45"to 48"s after between 1000 and 1100 muskies caught i'm long over due. hard to get over 48 in the river! had my chance in the early90's  . just released a 25 pounder drifted in shallow, depth finder went nuts (14 beeps,unheard of). fish never moved from mid july till nov 4th made countless passes over him , he was always there. this young dude i was taking with me  finally got his own boat and invited this idiot, know-it-all bass fisherman, first musky, figures he gets the fish to hit. get a call at 2 in the morning,  40lbs on his bathroom scale, brought the fish to the shop, called hank, he called all the old guys. 38lbs 14oz, biggest  legit  on hank was later confiscated by the DEC, the idiot didn't have his licence. figures, just my luck, "loser"!
