You’re going to need to build a larger aquarium! That’s a really great looking muskie but you’d need to throw it back in Wisconsin—can’t keep anything under 34” here! We’d love to catch a pumpkinseed that size here!

Thanks for sharing.

Nice fish skip, How do you like working with poplar ? I thinkit’s an under-rated wood…I like it’s workability and it doesn’t fuzz up like basswood that a lot of carvers seem to prefer. Poplar holds a little crisper line too !
Nice work ! Good to see you are busy.

Super job. Lovely paint. I have only caught one musky in my life. I was fishing for bluegills and the musky latched onto the bluegill I was reeling in. Was a fight on 6 lb test! It was 41 inches & I had to throw it back..our limit is 42!!

Thanks for the comment Porchfish, poplar is not real soft or real hard I think it’s great for carving and yes it is under-rated,and where I’m at it’s cheaper than basswood and cheap is good.

COOL Muskie!

Yes, I was also thinking that it was TOO SMALL to keep… throw it back! LOL

Beautiful job!

Never did hook one of those… Got a Pike though… only a small 19” er

Beautiful job!

When I first saw this I thought, “Why is this guy posting his stuffed fish?” Very lifelike!
