Something does not sound right on that muskie post? I was up at NAU in 73 majoring in football and home away from home was Ruffs liquor in Flag and we were catching big northern pike in Upper Mary and Mormon as it had perineal water and everyone was bringing in the northerns for comparison on size etc. and there were some huge fish brought in. That would of been a big deal with people talking about it if it happened? and secondly I am almost positive g and f would not have planted threadfin shad in the lake as shad do not survive real cold water, and there were times there were 12" of solid ice on Mary and Mormon people drove their vehicles out on them so I don't think shad is possible. After the idiots have illegally transplanted northern pike all over the place I doubt g and f is going to be interested in bringing in another top predator to northern lakes? my personal opinion is if you want muskies and northerns etc. move back to where you came from and leave our fisheries alone.

I hear bullsharks are fun to catch and can live in freshwater.

I'd do it in a float tube. I've caught 20 lb. carp and have been drug around in my tube for 15 minutes fighting it. I wait for the day I catch a 40-50 lb. flathead in it.

I would like to see them in Roosevelt They would make short work of the huge Gizzard shad there.
Anywhere they are back east and north, they dont seem to harm either LM or SM bass populations. So harming bass should not be a problem.
I have a lake in Indiana that I used to fish on a regular basis 30+ years ago, that had the same shad problem as Rosy. They released Musky in it a few years ago, and withing 5 years it became the premier Bass lake in the state. They both seem to co-exist pretty well. Northerns too for that matter.
While in Canada this past October, I caught all species on the same structure situations. It was just a matter of staying on a bar, hump, or saddle, for a little longer than normal without leaving too soon. First the Musky would appear, then the Walleye, and then the SM bass. All using the exact same bar, just at different times.
Everywhere I have been back there where Musky have been stocked, has always been a great bass lake too.
FWIW

I've fished for musky in the St. Lawrence river. They are not prejudice in what they eat, they will not target just shad or strippers. They will eat whatever they can get into their mouth. I caught a nice one, 45" and fat, when I cut it open I found two good size smallmouth bass in it, over 12" each. They won't cure a problem, they'll create one.
