Line class record?

11 posts in this topic

This past weekend my dad caught a 52" on 6 or 8# test mono (I need to verify). Does anyone know where to check if this is a line class record?

I dont have the answer to your question, but I believe all line class records are for weight and not length. So unless you weighed it officially I dont think it would qualify regardless.

Here is some information I found regarding reporting a record, but nothing about what the current records are:

Captian is right,

You needed to weigh it on a cert. scale, we found this out earlier this year on a 51.5" caught on 6# line. I guess a guy up on rainy caught a 57" on 8# mono.

Nice catch anyway.

It was weighed on a certified scale, but I don't remember the weight off the top of my head. In a day or so I'll give the DNR a call and see if they would know.

So It's not swimming in the lake anymore? Did you keep it to mount?

Ooooh Muskie Guys never want to here certified scale and 52"er in the same sentence. But I can tell you that your fish will be a ways away from any records. Walleye and Bass guys catch some pretty big Muskies.

Nice fish none the less. If you did keep it, next time please consider a graphite replica. They are better than a live mount in my oppinion and the fish gets to swim away for another day.

Yeah I don't think it would be a record. I know that one of my DNR friends caught a 55 1/2" fish on mille lacs smallmouth fishing with 8# test. It happens more frequently than you think. You would be supprised on how many are caught on 4# crappie fishing or ice fishing.

Nice fish either way. A real trophy either way.

Any body remember the show walkers cay chronicles a few years back that dude has cost me more tackle and nice fish than I've hooked in my whole life.But I'm hooked on ultra light rods,4 lb or 6 lb line,and learning my drag.20 and 21 in smallies,29 inch walleye 2 weeks ago caught and released,50 in musky to the side of my boat on eagle I don't need to boat them and take pictures to get joy that would mean my ugly mug in a photo and no one needs to see that.My slot for walleye is 14 to 18 so I am not worried about a meal from time to time.Going to Florida in Feb to try for Tarpon on fly rob that was my fav show of his wanna share gas?

You dont hear too much about the line class record with musky. Most of us use "rope". It is way too hard on the fish targeting them with light tackle resulting dead fish, vene if they swim off. There are the incidental catches however. Alot of eye guys catch monster eyes. I think many of them are caught out of muskie season. At least the monsters I have seen. IMO the record will fall to an eye guy as most musky guys wouldnt thump a fish.

    • better late than never!!  so far it's not to late any way!
    • I'm curious about the GenieJar.  Looks like there is a 30oz and a 17oz version.  I wonder how it works in fairly cold weather.  The nice thing about styrofoam is that it insulates against the entire water mass freezing into a minnow-sicle.  I wonder if they recommend throwing it inside your jacket or something. 
    • Agreed. I am getting nervous about the state of out financial situation now, well, I guess getting MORE nervous. Toward the back end of the contract Parise's deal isn't so bad since it was front loaded, but the term is so long. IMO we cannot afford any more buyouts. Pominville is such a buzzkill. Koivu has really played great the last 1 plus this year. No, he isn't going to win many races for the puck, but as long as he isn't on the top line I am OK with that. Staal is doing a little better than I had hoped I guess. I was hoping just for solid play, but there have been a few games where he and Coyle we so strong on the puck the opposition couldn't get control of it.
    • Hey Star, I wouldn't leave the fan there. It's going to get really HOT and will melt ! Move it to the bottom of the cabinet just left of the gas valve and have it blowing up so it pushes the heat out the vents on the top half of the heater.
    • I agree with the backing for the fly line.  Never had any problems and the stuff seems to get better with age.
    • Best thing I've found is backing for fly line.  It has no memory and virtually no knots.  It's better situated for rattle wheels because of the physical size of the backing but I've not had any problems yet with my Frabil tip-ups.  Deepest water we fish in is only 30' with normal depth of around 12'.  Our local Runnings sells 50 yard segments for like $3 each in any color. 
    • The next year my Mom and Dad cooked the turkey in one of those white roasters and it was awesome.  So I told her that too.  Big time.  It was nice and juicy too.
    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy.
