Just curious on how the fourm feels on mounting big Muskies or should they all be released. Point and case: I was fishing with a long time friend last Friday who always wanted to mount 1 big Muskie. He has released several fish over the long time trophy standard of 50" / 30#. But it seems with in the last 5 years this has grown to like 52+" / 35+#'s. We had a really good afternoon going 12 for 17 with 4 legal fish with 1 being 49" and 28#'s and losing 1 really big fish, right up until the very last fish of the night . Now let me take a step back, before we left the dock he did tell me that if we caught 1 over 51" and 32# he was going to mount it. Which I replied its your choice and knowing that catching a fish like that doesn't happen every day I wasn't that concerned. Well the down rod with a jointed Loke gets crushed right a 8PM. 15 minutes later we land a 53" / 34# fish that was officilally weighed. Now where I think there might be some controversy with some of the board members is, we killed that fish. I personally was okay with this decision my friend made. My standards are higher maybe because I know that catching a 40#er will probably never happen to me so I probably wont have to make that decision but I was still okay with his decision. What are your thoughts.
