No Spearing
"Careful. That word has been known to cause adrenaline overdoses.

These giants have just one attitude. Nasty. Muskies have been described as "pure muscle with gills." They give a no-holds-barred tussle like Hulk Hogan in the wrestling ring.

Easy to see why. Ask anyone who has boated one. A thirty-pounder is plenty to give you the excitement of your life. A 40-pounder will stop your heart.

The scientific name for muskellunge is Esox masquinongy. Most anglers translate that as "pure mean."

FISH ON! Members of the pike family, muskies are easily distinguished from its popular cousin, the northern pike. Northerns have light spots on a dark background. Muskies have dark splotches on a light background"
