With my friend Aki's permission, I'm posting this picture of him with a Tiger Muskellunge. It was caught on the Schuylkill River, back in 2007 (May 17th). According to him, he was fishing around 6 a.m., when he saw a school of minnows jumping around! Taking that as a great sign of predators being around, he threw his lure on the spot and the Muskie hit right away! Awesome catch!
Thank you very much for contributing this picture, Aki. It's a shame that you are no longer in Philadelphia, though!
Aki is currently in Japan, and he runs a charter fishing boat in Tokyo Bay. You can click here to access his website.
If you are ever interested in fishing with him in Japan, check out his website. I've seen enough photos of nice fishes on his profile, so you will be putting your money to good use!
