I have 5 between 29" and 29 7/8ths" with none touching that 30 inch mark yet. Heaviest one I caught was last fall...a really thick, fat 28.5" that I'm sure was over 10. Have never put a scale to any of them. Still searching for that 30"+++...maybe this is the year?!

31.5, 30.5, and a 30 all in the same night a few years ago. I would have liked to hook into on of those the last two days in the tourney on Leech, but nothing over 25.75

30" and 30.25" both caught on Gull Lake last May. Nice fat fish that are hopefully still swimming in the lake.

I got thin 28.5" that only weighed in at 6.2 from Mille Lacs. My heaviest was a 28" that was probably 8.5 from a small creek in the fall. I got 2 27.5" 'eyes on the same trip on the same spot in Canada last summer.

Still need my first 30"

30.5 is my PB so far I am waiting to catch that bonafide fish in the teens still which I may spend the rest of my life chasing.

29" on Lake Vermilion. 28" on Lake Bemidji. Multiple 27"+ fish on Leech Lake. All of them released. Like others, still waiting for the elusive 30" grin

27.5" 8 1/4 lbs. ice fishing the night before my 29th birthday, that was a while ago... It was the first big fish I ever caught had no camera & was by myself, so I took it home to show people. Didn't actually think it was as big as it was, when I found out I hung it on the wall. The next one will have to be 30" or awfully close, depends on the situation.

Put a 26" back last summer, but have not caught a lot of big fish in my life. Slow start for me this year.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
