Yep, and my buddy said that he cared nothing about putting a fish like that on his wall. The guide was about half "sideways" when he stuck his filet knife into it. Said he couldn't believe what he was doing due to that being one of the best fish that had been in his boat in 10 years. I'm still shaking my head on that one......Sweet. Fish of a lifetime.
Thanks, buddy! Been using the same guide for 3 years now. He retired from Law Enforcement and took over his dad's striper guide business. He really knows his stuff when it comes to finding the fish. You have to book him a year in advance if you want to fish the best months for the BIG stripes.Man those both look like awesome trips. I can't ever catch anything over a 12-13 pound striper not from lack of effort either . Really nice fish.
I released this blue marlin and took length and girth with a picture and sent it to Grey's Taxidermy in Florida. If you did that and he wanted it on the wall he could just send it in. We have charter captains here that offer a pool to get in for biggest fish for the year and you get a free mount.Yep, and my buddy said that he cared nothing about putting a fish like that on his wall.

Definitely great times! I fish with Dad as often as my wife (and wallet.....nearly the same thing) will allow! Dad turned 70 this past August and is starting to develop some "memory problems". So, I try to keep guides booked as steady as possible. I'll definitely look into Melton Hill Lake....we've never targeted muskies before. Thank you, sir!Have fun with your Dad!
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
