28K logged catches • 352K followers

The fish of 10,000 casts. Theese monsters are in the top of the food chain - meaning they eat what they want, and they can be picky. Fishing musky can be frustrating as they often follow the lure to the boat. Practice your "figure 8 rod move" to increase your chances. Handle with caution as they have razor sharp teeth.
