Re: Anybody musky fishing?
Hey Ed - Saw muskyrat's pic with his boy in Musky Hunter magazine! Congrats!
Luck - I'll believe the rumors when I have more than a newspaper editors hype. I see big fish get overestimated way to much in our area by people not familiar with big fish. 4 footers become 5 footers, 21 to 23 inch girths become 26 to 29 inch fish. I suspect that it may have been a big fish, but over 50lbs? I'll wait to hear more. My guess is it was a big fish (possibly a few inches bigger than it really was) with an overestimated girth that resulted in an inflated estimate of "near state record." If the pics really exist and the fish is really big enough to call a "near record," we are gonna see a true beast of a river musky! Until then.......I'm still scratching my head on how it was caught Monday? I'm a die-hard for fishing muddy & high, but that was "near flood conditions" if memory serves me. I'd give the guy props for catchiong ANY musky that day!
There is always a season!
