  1. Way to fearmonger and sensationalize things. Forget the fact that the muskie was in a net and wanting to escape not attack or that the goliath grouper may have mistaken a person for a fish of it's normal diet. Let's call them attacks and monsters. I think it's Great that the goliath grouper are making a comeback after being almost brought to extinction by humans.

  2. All I could think of when the muskie were on film was how much a fresh yellow perch sandwich with homemade slaw would be rite now.
    My God I'm so hungry, help!

  3. snakeheads are America's most aggressive fish even though they did not originate here in the US. snakeheads will attack a person if they are swimming too close to a nest

  4. When I was a kid I used to go trolling for muskies with my dad and Grandpa in Lake st. Clair in Michigan. One of the last times we went out, they caught a 4-footer. But they caught a lot of 3 Footers+ over the years. The guy who described them as wolves in the water was pretty accurate. That muskie they showed biting on that suckerfish was just playing. Or it was young or it was really cold because if it wanted to it would have just taken that fish and been gone.

  5. It's more fun watching NOT FINDING MONSTER QUEST with CC on and the speed increased to 1.75.
    One of the serious problems with this episode is their monster fish. It's supposed to be a giant Mustke. (Spelling?) They show two old photos of anglers who caught 300 lb. groupers. But the Mustke is torpedo shaped with long upper and lower fang-like teeth.
    While diving, they get all spooky over a morey eel, and make comments about the groupers and torpedo shaped fish that they video.
    The men switch back and forth between water scenes with diving to frozen water where the ice is about 16-18 inches thick. So, where are they?
    As is typical, this is for entertainment only. It was fun hearing them laugh.

  6. I love this show but the fishing expert has never fished in pa. We have some tiger musky that you can see in the susquehanna that are slightly smaller than my 12 foot kayak but won't bite regardless of what I throw at it even if it's liviah bait rite in front of it. Mainly due to the fact that these predators that do not want to use energy unless it's necessary. So the fact you say they are hyper aggressive is a lie. They are a fish of 10,000 casts for a reason. The chances of a musky attacking like a pike is HYPER exaggerated. I've literally thrown a 7 inch half alive blue gill in front of one of these massive fish and it snubbs it regardless of anything I do. Pike on the other hand have and will hit any kind of bait so your fishing expert is close to the species being in the same genus but wrong fish entirety. Also american show stop going to canada when there are legit monsters in some of the states fresh water lake's including man made lakes where introduced fish have no predators so they grow without check. Home work was done just half assed.

  7. First two minutes of the video they show massive fish hanging on docs in black-and-white photos! These fish are giant sea trout they are not goliath grouper. Always been like that I look for inconsistencies in videos I’m sorry. I know this video is accurate up to about 99% but it’s at 1% that gets me. You know like when you’re watching a show about alligators and they keep showing video of crocodiles! Or videos of pythons and they’re showing boa constrictors. Same basic idea only different

  8. It's funny how they say "20 below 0" like that's unimaginable. That's pretty par for MN. I'm more impressed with the guys being devoted enough to be in it for days. That's what my family calls "hunker down" weather!

  9. So that guy got bitten, well what did he expect trying to grab it from his net. It's all about survival for the fish and the fish was trying to defend himself. If it was me id bite to!!!

  10. When I was younger we went to Louisiana once a year for shrimp and fish. Broke down at sea storms overtake you seasick I would never swim in the ocean call me chicken
