My husband Matt caught 3 large keeper (over 40") muskeys 3 summers ago at deadmans basin (the only lake in Montana with Musky's in it available to the public to fish. Matt never kept any of them but has a lot of great memories of those trips. He definately met your expectations for this competition. Please consider him for this recognition. He's a great and ethical fisherman I'm proud to be married to. Thanks.Also, if you like this check out our other fishing and hunting photos at our new facebook page://
