Death of a Giant

Rarely does a wild creature in nature die of of old age. This is a musky I found floating dead in the Wendover section of the O this past week. The small squiggly things on it are 7-year old silver lamprey eels. Anyone who knows them can judge the size of this fish and will tell you that it is massive..

I attempted to determine if this fish had been caught or a cause of death but my days of collecting cleithrum out of rotting corpses are gone and it only took a few dry heaves before I bailed. She is a mid 50s fish on my best guess, maybe 55. That makes her close to 30 years old and at full maturity. Old age or angling or natural causes. We will never know.

Handle them all like gold because this fish is one in a billion.
