Line Class Record Muskie

27 posts in this topic

Hey Guys,

It looks like Lucas Adams, while guiding at Camp Manitou on wednesday caught a possible 8lb. line class world record muskie in esox lake, just south of the manitou stretch. It was 51.5" caught while bass fishing on a pink jig. From what we have found this ties the record, but we can't get ahold of anyone to verify, being a holiday today.

If anyone knows anymore about what the official 8lb. record is let me know.

Thanks,

Matt

I have the pictures but for some reason I can't post them? I did on another fishing site no problem?

Of course it was released, we don't keep any muskies or any other fish of any size anything decent is all released. It's mainly Catch and Release except what you are going to eat.

Is there a simple way to post pics?

Thanks,

I saw the pictures of Lucas and the muskie. Its an impressive fish to say the least. Catch and release is the only way to go, esp on fish of that nature. Let em fight for another day.

That's one seriously beautiful healthy fish.

You must have handled her gently to have the tail still be that perfect.

I hope to meet her soon - or her mother!

Congrats to you Lucas!

She was in real good shape. We did our best to be easy on her and get her back in water to make sure she survived. She seemed to be in great shape as she swam off.

Hey Matt,

It looks like you have access to email up at Camp Manitou. Why don't you return some phone calls regarding deposits at Happy Landing??? Sure would be the fair and ethical thing to do - don't you think??

Hi John,

I did return your last phone call and I talked to one of the other guys in your group. I sent out your checks this afternoon. I haven't been in the office for 2 weeks, if that is where you are calling?

I told you a couple weeks ago that I would send you check back once I recieved and insurance check, one came in last thursday and I sent out may and june guests as well as yours. I guess it was unethical to send yours out before the july guests, but I know you really need it - so I sent it.

I will call you tomorrow, I will be in the office and we can touch base.

well...I dont want to get in the middle...but my brother and I were up there a few weeks back. Between the 2 of us we had a miscommunication and we had no check for our final payment. Matt trusted me to send the check when we got back (hopefully you should have that soon - Matt) and we really appreciated the understanding. having your resort burn down cant be the easiest thing to manage - so I am sure he is doing his best with this...just my 2 cents.

Matt,

Thank you for the reply. Here has been the problem....I have called every number I can and no one returns the phone calls or emails. I did get a message but could not understand much of anything at all. I assume that you called from the lodge and the reception made it impossible to understand. We could make out Happy Landing and 4 boats and walleye and that was all. I have left more than 10 messages so I was feeling ignored for sure. I am terribly sorry about the lodge. We really wanted to fish with you there---otherwise we never would have made the reservation in the first place. But also remember that your insurance company has a relationship with you - not any of us in our group. With the 9 dads and sons in our group - a few felt they could not go to Canada this year unless they received the deposit back. I was left with the task of tracking it down. So thanks for sending the checks as we will be able to make our father/son trip work.

I gave her your numbers and e-mail, so she sould contact you soon.

Hey Mark,

The bass fishing has been very good the past week or so and the big pike are really starting to show up where ever there is emerging weed growth. We are still behind with the cool water and cooler air temps, but it looks like the summer patterns are just around the corner.

The walleye fishing has been fantastic on Straw and Sucan the past few trips also. They are already in a summer pattern, because of the stained shallow water. The water temps over there are already in the mid 70's.

Matt -

Thanks for rubbing it in!

I will be up there next weekend - I wish!

So, did you guys ever verify anything yet with the Muskie?

How are those 2 small lakes doing that we fished for smallies...are they still in there?

Hope the rest of the season goes well.

Mark

It was release so we don't know what it weighed.

Hey Mark,

It looks like the 8lb. line class with the FWFHOF is 61", but we are now checking with the ontario line records.

The bass are only in two spots on phairs, most have moved out with the warming of the water.

If next year is a normal year, you might want to plan about 2 weeks ahead of what you did this year to stay on the same pattern.

I would *GUESS* that is anywhere from a 36-40 lb fish, an absolute beauty indeed

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
