This Leaping Muskie statue celebrates the area on the St Lawrence River as a top muskellunge (muskie) area.
Muskies will eat anything that fits into their mouth - mostly other fish, but also frogs, ducklings, snakes, muskrats, mice and other small mammals and small birds.
They are known for their strength and their tendency to leap from the water in stunning acrobatic displays.
this awards log goes up to 2000, but the last entry is for 1997. not sure what happened. maybe there is another one inside the building.
