A Michigan angler suffers a muskie bite that requires stitches, don’t be like him.
Two Michiganers have a great day on the water until one of them is subject to a nasty muskie bite that leads him to visit the ER for stitches.
Check out this clip and see if you can find out how this muskie bite could have been avoided.
That muskie was of decent size and this angler should have known better than to trust it to stay still when he was holding it up. Did you notice how unhelpful the other guy in the boat was? He just saw there and filmed his buddy the whole time and didn’t even get up to fetch the pliers for him.
That muskie bite could have been avoided, but these guys were probably a little distracted because of their phones and cameras. Maybe that angler just wanted to brag telling his friend, “Reeling in a musky, gotta call you back.”
After watching this video you have seen the damage a muskie bite can do. Be careful next time you are holding one, and please help your buddy if they need to get to the pliers.
