Satchel was the undisputed king of the resident muskies. He had roamed the flowage for years, periodically terrorizing innocent fisherman by surfacing like a whale so close to a boat that the occupants could look deep into the fish's black eyes and see what seemed to be undiluted piscatorial evil.

I love this story so much! It reminds me so much of some of the fishy stories my grandfather used to tell us while fishing from the dam. Every lake or river has some sort of giant monster living in it, real or imagined. I've seen a gigantic snapping turtle near our dock, but the memory of it is much larger than the actual turtle. I'd have liked to meet uncle Charlie. Nice job on the narration.
