You know what’s almost 4 1/2 feet long, runs 20 feet deep, takes out almost 200 feet of line, and tastes like crap no matter how you cook it?

Christine Cope’s muskie.

The angler from Ottawa, Ontario Canada landed the 55 inch brute on Oct. 10 while fishing the Ontario side of Lake St. Clair.

Cope had little luck that day trolling for almost 9 hours before landing a 42-inch beast around 4 p.m.

An hour later, the big one hit.

Cope said the fight took “forever” but in the end she landed the big boy.
