A native of Buffalo, N.Y., he is an avid fan of the Bills and still has mental scars from four consecutive Super Bowl losses.

Mega muskie at Banner Marsh

April 07, 2010 at 03:41 PM

Flathead is back with a Picture of the Week.

Actually, he submitted two pictures of the same big female muskie out of Wheel Lake at Banner Marsh. She measured 48.5 inches and weighed 30 pounds.

Biologists are trap-netting at Banner this week so it will be interesting to see what else comes in from the nets.

Is there any place that the public can see the results of the trap-net survey?
