Muskie Strike!

It's always fun to capture the hero shot.  The big fish and the big smile always make for a great memory.  Over the years I've managed to share in many of these "fish of a lifetime" moments.  I assure you that they never get old - Ever!  While they are fun to capture, I've found it enjoyable to add a twist to the picture.  In this shot, I didn't do the standard horizontal pose with the fish.  Instead, I wanted to show off the head of the beast while also keeping other aspects of the picture in the background.  I'm not sure if this happened on accident, or by luck, but I'll take the final result.  Dusty and I have caught thousands of fish together in our short lifetime, this picture happens to be one of my favorites!
