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.

This short story was quite cute to be honest! It evoked images of an old man, sitting on a rocking chair, telling his grandkids abut the time that he went fishing with his Uncle Charlie, about seeing the mighty Satchel and almost catching him!
This is my third book by Bill Stokes and one thing I have to say about the man, and its that he can write, and write extremely well at that. His style of writing is like very descriptive and homely. It brings to mind tales that your grandfather would tell you, of being surrounded by family and listening to the same stories again, and again but never getting bored because the storyteller can tell it well. I hope Bill Stokes brings us more books!!
Johnny Mack did a great job bringing the descriptive writing to life. His tones and inflections were well done and he made the book really enjoyable to listen to.
It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.
TO SHOOT A MUSKY was a neat short story. I found it evocative stirring my imagination as well as memories of fishing with my grandpa. The imagery was excellent. I really like Bill Stokes writing. It's easy and effective in its simplicity yet it also has a bit of complexity as well.
Johnny Mack's performance was a perfect match for this story. His voice inflections spanned from youthful exaggeration to adulthood memories. This really worked well.

I love audiobooks!!!
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.
I love almost anything post-apocalyptic, zombie, scifi, ect. Always looking for some new earhole entertainment!
A great fishing tale like my grandfather used to tell! I truly love these short stories by Bill Stokes. To me they are like those Pixar animated shorts my kids love. A short story leaving the reader completely satisfied! Great narration by Johnny Mack.
