    Tubeman,

    I don't know how many muskies you've caught or how long you have been around fishing but the fact is every specie of fish has a life expectance,,, sorry I didn't make up the rules,, including the muskie. Also the female of any fish has a time in her life where her eggs are successful in producing fry and a time when she is past her time. "Most" adult,, big fish are past there prime and are no longer successful in reproduction.

    I have never intentionally kept a ski for the wall but I wouldn't hesitate if the right fish came along because of the cost involved. Just to give you a little perspective, it would have to be a really big one but after landing more than 1600 fishing for them about 1/2 the season I haven't seen it yet. Some of you guys need to relax.

    Those that are so inclined find it hard to mount a live fish. They're slippery and flop around, making it difficult to get the job done.
