I have no doubt in my mind whatsoever that if I still lived up there I would be in BIG trouble.

That's the reason we do this crazy sport right there!

dtro: You do essentially the same thing here with the cats! How could it get worse? :-)

The guy with the 55 incher is 6'3"....gives you an idea of how big the fish really is!

The guy holding the 55 is a much smaller person too, so I proportion it looks larger. Either way, they are both giants. IMO there is no mistaking the first one is definitely bigger. The guy holding it is eclipsing the sun! LOL

Interesting story:

Was fishing Big V last week and saw a fish that I didn't even believe could be at first due to the shear size, until it started swimming away. Saw her 3 times total once on quick sideways run at my lure. Was telling someone up there about her and he said that happened to be the spot where the 58" was taken, what a fish.

I saw more BIG fish last week than I've ever seen before. Pretty sure I saw about a half dozen different fish in the mid 50's...yes mid 50's not low. It was just amazing. You know things are good up there when Tony Grant, Greg Thomas, Bob Mesikomer, Hammernick, and I don't know how many other big names were all up there recently. I saw about half of these guys running around out there either doing shows or with their clients.

That's great that you saw a fish that big Tippman. It's awesome when you can see one that can re-define your perception of the relative size of these fish.

Sweet monsters! Too bad the exif data was stripped from those photos before posting. Could at least have gotten date and time of day that way.

Congrats to those two dudes!

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
