On Friday, June 28th, the game show Jeopardy had the following question, "Step inside the "Big Musky", a giant model of this fish, & the highlight of the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame in Wisconsin. The answer, or question I guess, was, "What is a muskellunge."

The question makes reference to what is known as the “Shrine to Anglers” in Hayward, WI, the concrete, steel and fiberglass muskellunge sculpture is half a city block long and nearly five-stories tall over an 88,000 gallon pond, with a viewing platform for up to 20 people to see a panoramic view of Lake Hayward.
