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.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
