Default HUGE MUSKY

What a Monster
5o inch musky from Mille Lacs
Pushing that 40lb class
Released unharmed



This was a guide trip with the Rockman and Rich from Bio-Bait and crappie magnet on tues. night. We fished for walleyes and got a monster ski along with some nice eater walleys. Pic below of richs fish. The Hot dogs were on the cooker as the monster hit a #5 shallow running shad in the fire tiger color in 6 ft of water on 6# fire line. At first i thought it was a 26 inch eye, but as the fish got closer to the boat I could tell it was no eye, but a huge ski. As rich tried his best to lift it into the boat I could tell that he was not going to do it on his own so I reached out to give him a hand as the huge monster ski made it's way into the boat. Every ones eyes got as big as a dinner plate when the ski was lowerd to the floor. Rich and myself had to back up when the huge jaws opened, we just wanted to get out of the way of those big teeth. We got the lure out of the ski and took some quick pics of her and released it within a few minutes. She swam off with no hesitation to be caught another day or night by someone else. It is always a great feeling to put back such a beautiful fish as this one truly was. We ended the night with 3 keeper walleyes and the huge monster ski. Thanks for the memory guys. That is truly what it is all about.

Wow!!! Who was that guide? But seriously, that truly is awesome. It is refreshing to see that some big fish are still around.

Default fish of a life time

YES IS SURLY IS A FISH OF A LIFE TIME, BUT I SEEM TO CATCH ONE EVERY YEAR AT THIS TIME, NOT USUALLY THIS HUGE, WHILE TROLLING FOR WALLEYES. I JUST COULD NOT KILL A FISH SO BIG AND SO BEAUTIFUL. EVEN THOUGH I DID THINK ABOUT IT FOR A SECOND.
THANKS

THAT IS ONLY ONE OF MANY IN THAT CLASS THAT ARE SWIMMING AROUND ON MILLE LACS. THE NEXT STATE OR POSSIBLY WORLD RECORD MUSKY WILL COME FROM HERE. I CAN TELL YOU THAT.
THANKS
