A good doggone day?

But really, there's no standard. Both normal and zero plurals are equally valid (the same way "trout" or "salmon" works). The American Fisheries Society considers Muskellunge to be the official name (capitalized, since they treat it as a proper noun), which throws a wrench into things, since it would be a zero plural -- "muskellunges" just sounds stupid.
