Chuck Cooper : What an awesome father and son moment captured for all time. The father learning the depths of his ability to give, and the son learning the depths of his inner strength. A truly moving and beautiful moment where each taught the other how to be better at being human.

wouter jema : u r one hell of a fisherman and 1 hell of a dad  kid will never forget this day ! it almost made me cry . U sir are a winner !

Erik Jacobson : Thanks so much! It's was an unbelievable experience. Really proud of all my fishin kids!

Muskie Matt : David, I don't know if you realize it or not, but you've caught a state record. We true muskie guys know that you don't need to kill an amazing fish to hold a title. Good for you for wanting that fish to live and grow. It is great to see that the future of our passion is in good hands. You are a true sportsman and your father has taught you well. Fantastic work and an unbelievable fish!

Mad Mac82 : Wow a lot of people could learn a lesson from this awesome young guy,when he said he wants it to grow bigger and not kill it.really loved this film me and my boy go fishing a lot but we don't have fish like that in England we catch pike instead.

ManicMindTrick : This makes me want to have children.

Tom Butler : It doesn't get any better than that! A lot of adults would have taken that rod and landed it themselves...Kudos to you Dad, you're awesome!

Scott Buczek : As an avid Muskie Angler and introducing my kids to the sport I cannot help but get goosebumps and emotional when I see a father and son team up to land a giant fish. I only hope one day my children and me can experience a giant fish like this. I want nothing more in the sport of fishing to see my kids catch fish. Far more rewarding than catching your own!! Great job Dad and son!
