43" musky released, PIC link

Last week I was fishing Plum lake for the first time, on our summer vacation.
I casted musky lures for about 4 hours a day all week. Walleye fishing was slow with the usual methods.

Danny 3 and Samantha 5 wanted to go out, so I grabed the camera for the first time and headed out.



Landed that one casting over submerged weeds in 13 feet. No net in the boat, so I had to hand land it.

I did catch 3 eyes over 20 inches on Musky tackle.

Sammy took the pics, Danny was not thrilled about swimming in the lake after seeing this fish. He looks a little peturbed in the pic's.

    Haven't seen one like that in over 40 years.

    Now ?? Were in the record book would your Musky score, and what type of tackle were you using.
    You do have proof that you did catch this fish and if near a record fish could start a run of people trying to catch this one or one like it as if there is this one there should be others.
