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.

    •   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?
