I have heard many stories about Muskie being caught on 6-8lb. test with a small lure and they had to fight the fish for 20 min. to land it.
I believe this puts a lot of stress on the fish which can't be good.
My question is can you land a fish to quick? With todays awesome Musky gear you can horse a fish in pretty damn quick. I always wondered if you land a fish to quick, can you stress it out to much as well?
In your expert opionions what would be the min/max time to land a Muskie to harm it the least?
