    That's kind of a weird, unimpressive looking photo - especially with the elbow in the picture. Anyone have a link to a better picture?

    Agreed. The fish in that picture looks nothing like 38"x28", even with the long arms.
    Who picks up a dead fish and has it mounted anyways?

    My guess is that had it been you who found it, we'd be looking at you in the photo instead of someone else!

    Ya, I don't think so.
    Where I come from it is illegal to molest dead fish. Leave the biomass in the river for the next generatoin.

    That's why, when I finally get to fish the Madison, I am going to throw foot long musky streamers with a heavy rod.

    If he still has my 22 zebra midge in his jaw, I want it back :D. Where there is one, rest assured there are others...Hebgen grows monsters and with the recent breach in the dam could be that it passed through.
