Muskie Cradle, fabric, soft mesh and wood, replaces a net which can be difficult with large predator fish like Northern Pike and Muskies. This device has an almost calming action on big fish and allows for safe catch and release without lifting a fish like a pike or muskie that has avery long, vulnerable tubular air bladder that can be easily damaged if pulled vertically from the water. The cradle (60" measurement on sides with approximately 14" handles) rolls up and neatly lays on the boat floor. As a fish is hooked and played, the floating cradle can be slid in the water parallel to the boat and the fish can be gently slid into the cradle without taking the fish out of the water, being gently handled as hooks are removed. After the hooks are removed the fish can be revived and easily releasd, allowing for a successful "recycling" of a valuable fishing resource to live and fight another day. An ingenious invention that really performs well.
