You know it's a good day....

....when muskies are literally jumping into the boat.

Check out this clip we found while scrollin' the internet as we do:

Musky Jumping

No net man required for this frisky high-flyer.

Almost reminds me of the boatside action you get from these Florida behemoths....almost. This action shot from tarpon guide Capt. Dave Nelson is straight-up RIDONKULOUS!

Tarpon Jumping

Gotta think this would be like hookin' up to a 125lb musky with an extra, extra spicy attitude. #tarponinsider

Musky Art

This is one of our favorite segments. It's always cool seeing what unique artwork our musky-obsessed compadres come up with. 🎨

First, we have a really sweet acrylic painting from Charles Weiss, inspired by his summer musky chasin' adventures on Eagle Lake in Ontario:

Next, we have a framed musky from @creeknut made outta craft brew labels:

Micro Brew Muskie

This was Brian H.'s first crack at stained glass artwork, so naturally, he decided to make a musky:

Brian Dinter gets some serious bonus points for creativity with this one:

A couple weeks back, we showcased some seriously giant walleyes (31 and 29 inches) caught by Toby Kvalevog and Chris Whitney on Leech Lake throwing a 10-inch Posseidon for 'skies:

The next day, Larry Michael replied to the email with this message:

"NO WAY!!! Here's a photo of me fishing muskie with an identical 10 inch Posseidon, catching a 29 inch walleye on Vermilion. WTH (true story!)"

And here's the photos:

What are the chances??? 🤯  Thanks for sharing Larry!
