  - Fish Facts:   Muskies and Northern Pike are classified as cool-water fish, but they prefer difference water temperature
    and more so among the larger members of each species. For the 30 inch and longer Pike,
    they prefer water temperatures from 50 to 55 degrees, while Muskies prefer temperatures of 67 to 72 degrees.
    Also, Pike actively feed throughout the year making them a popular target of ice anglers,
    while Muskies feed much more sporadically in winter and rarely caught by ice anglers.

Fisherman´s Prayer
God grant that I may live to fish until my dying day, and when the final cast is made and life has slipped away,
I pray that God ´s great landing net will catch me in its sweep, and in his mercy, God will judge me big enough to keep.
