Nope, just heard about it through the grapevine. I did catch one only 3" shorter this spring there a week earlier, probably about one fourth the weight though!! Anyone know what the previous record was? Or the MN record if the angler had been from MN?

The old WI record was 6# 4.8oz from the Missisippi River (pierce cty), 3-30-2008, 23.75".

The MN record is 6# 2.75oz from Mississippi River (Goodhue Cty), 5-23-1988, it was 23 7/8 in, with 15" girth.

That is a true PIG. Looks like to many steriods in those waters.

So is it a Minnesota or a Wisconsin record depending on where the fisherman was from since they both came from the Mississippi?

Thats a dandy Saug. I have caught a few that were close to 20" but never even close to that heavy.
