It was a surprise
I mainly target walleye, hybrids, smallmouth, white bass, crappies if their in, just about everything but muskies. Caught on a 1/8oz jig and 3" grub, 6lb test line. Thankfully my camera was all set up from other fish already so two quick shots of her with me holding her and then a few as she regained her strength to swim away.
I didn't have a tape measure long enough but I put two rocks near the water to roughly mark her length. Went back yesterday with a long enough tape and came up with 47-51". It's a crude measurement to say the least but at least some idea how long she was. The girth on this fish was incredible!
