This is where you can help. You see it inferred in the second picture above but it is a subject not often talked about.
The Muskie Hug
Here you can almost feel that big joyous smile on this fish's face as Jeanine imparts a big loving Muskie Hug on her:
Jim's hugs include a soothing song before returning to the water. This big girl can't seem to get enough of Jim's rendition of Total Eclipse of the Heart. On the figure 8 you can hear Jim begin, "Turn around, every now and then I get a little bit lonely and you're never coming round..."
So the next time that big girl visits your boat, show her some love. Sent her back healthy AND smiling.
