Are the musky good to eat? Looks like everybody puts them back. I sure do enjoy eating pike best fish ever. Larry

I am told they are a notch up from pike.

I havent eaten one, since up here you might see three fish in a day...our population wouldn't support a harvest. You can keep one trophy over 54", but no one does.

I hear of places with incredibly high populations. While we fish them here for the sport challenge only, if a population is high enough to sustain a harvest, why not?

Some like to kill them because they eat walleye and other fish we like to eat, but here anyway what musky eat pales in comparison to the hordes of cormorants and the far more common northern pike.

Catching them is just good fun up here!

Sorry to hear. People's reactions to covid have screwed up a lot of things

I have a trip planned to the legendary eagle lake in Sept.

So excited

Excellent videos on your channel. "Life on the trapline episode 1" is pretty cool.

Some of those look like St. Clair fish, do Georgian bay fish have the similar spotted markings?

Good eye Bernie, but nope. Never fished st clair.

All the fish with the spots or tiger markings came in the fall, in one specific area.

Mt first year targeting musky and out of 11 fish I personally caught only two had those markings.

Hutchy if you ever want to get to Sunset Country I'll take you to a lake where you can catch muskies until your arms hurt. Fish over 40" are rare but I have caught as many as 11 in one day between 30-40.

Here's some pics of typical fish from this lake. I can also take you to quite a few lakes where you'll catch way more numbers but not as big of average size.
