    Thats pretty crazy, I didn't know there were albino fish.. I wonder what the guy thought he had when he got it to the boat.. Also wonder what he did with it. Are albino fish protected like deer and stuff? Because that would make a really sweet mount.

    I hope he released it. I would assume so since very few Musky fishermen keep.

    Re: Cool Fishing Story

    I'd take a bunch of pictures (close ups for correct color) and then have a replica mount made.

    I would hate to see the price tag of a 51" albino muskie replica. But it would be well worth it. That would look pretty sweet chasing those bluegill that your brother had mounted.
