Menagha, Minn., man wants his missing monster muskie backPARK RAPIDS, Minn. - A Minnesota man wants his monster muskie back.
Butch Cole of Menagha is offering a reward for the return of his trophy muskie. The 50-inch monster mount was on display in the lobby of a Park Rapids motel, but it disappeared.
Cole is an avid angler who says he's landed a dozen big muskie. But he says the one that was stolen was his first, and he wants it returned - no questions asked.
While most muskie are mounted curved outward, this trophy fish faces the wall instead.
