Oh how I wish I had one even close to that size.

For those that frequent here but not other muskie message boards, go searching around for some pics that will leave you speechless.

Many congrats to him and a tip of the cap for letting her swim away.

Much respect.

Where do the calculators put her at? Over 60?

Crazy and huge! LxGxG/800 formulas go out the window on fish like this, its hard to tell how thick the 18+ inches of tail hanging off to the right are.

Beast: Yes.

Sumo-Beast: Yes.

World Record territory fish: Pending it being an accurate measure (assumedly so), despite the huge belly and lack of overall lengthwise mass, I'd say it's definitely flirting with the 70lb marker.

That said......never in my wildest dreams.

I know I'm speaking heresy here but I always said I would never keep a musky unless it was a possible world record. Wouldn't even keep a state record. What do others think? And I've always wondered what would the new world record musky be worth monetarily? Like endorsements, etc.

Huge. It has a case of beer belly though, as cjac pointed out the weight doesn't seem to go all the way to the tail. Still an impressive fish and props to the guy for releasing it. Only problem with the photo is anyone making a replica can't see the tail...

JR,

I don't think anything was said to the contrary or challenging the legitimacy of the fish. There are other sites for that! wink

Vahn was just saying it's a belly-heavy fish, different in comparison to the longer and thicker overall mass than let's say the Dahms/Jonesi Mille Lacs fish of a couple years ago. Again, just a comparison for body-mass make-up sake. This one reminded me of the beer-pig that Hamernick put a client on a few years back.

If anything he was simply saying the perspective and coloration of the 18-20 inches of the tail is lost in the photos we've seen thus far. The angler will be sharing the whole story, he said the fish came out of the water once! I cannot imagine what that would have been like to see......

No way that fish is 57", let alone a 33" girth grin. Photoshop all day long blush. Never seen a St Lawrence fish marked like that either crazy, must be a MN secret spot shocked. Someone had to do it!!!!

What a beast, congrats to the angler on a fish of thousands of lifetimes!

i'm looking at the planer reels... not sure but those don't look like 8'' reels. anyone know that manufacturer? i just don't think that a guy that size has a 8'' around head. and they are in back which makes them smaller than the forefront. if they are 8'' it would take 4+ of them fitting inside her. if they are 9'' 3 2/3 of them, assuming the outer rims were the measurement not the inside reel spool. i just don't know. but i do know that fish is bigger than anything in freshwater thats ever swam near me. man that's a pig. eek

FWIW, Dale who caught it is said to be a 300lb'er. That should change some of the perspectives a little. I can't imagine what that fish would look like if my skinny arse was holding it!

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.
