Friday Fish: Esox masquinongy

This is the Friday Fish I should have posted on Friday, December 15.

The Muskie is a close relative of the Northern Pike, and is found in many of the same waters. It grows larger, and has a reputation amoung anglers as a dramatic fish to catch, often jumping clear of the water when hooked. They are famous for preying on virtually anything in or on the water that they can swallow, which for a 150+ cm specimen can include anything up to adult ducks and adults of other large fish species such as bass.
