Re: 43" musky released, PIC link

It sure was a nice fish, I talked to a dnr employee who surveys the lakes fisherman by boat 40 hours per week. This is part of the lake plan involving Indian treaty rights and spearfishing, to include sport angler catches.

I was told by him that this lake was fike netted after tribal spearing this spring.

A 51" and a 47" were netted and released after tagging ect.

So if you think a 43" will hord them in how about a 51" Honestly this lake has a reputation for big fish so fishing preasure for Musky is heavy. The clear water 12 feet visability and 60 foot depths makes it tough fishing.

I once read the adult musky population of a given body of water can be estimated by calculating one adult fish per 15 acres of surface water. That would put the population at about 75 fish. This spring the Indians speared 30 adult fish, acording to the dnr agent.

I don't remember the regs in Minnesota well; ....I think in order to keep a Musky it has to be over 40". I don't have a clue in Wisconsin. I never ate Musky; I don't think they are good to eat because of the build-up of toxins. Now I have had fresh Northern...that's good stuff.

Very nice fish. Glad you still have fingers.

Jim,

Nice musky, the only time I seem to get a hook in one of them critters is when I have a bass rod in my hand, fight doesn't last very long on 6 lb test.

nvp,

I don't think I'd have even set the hook on that one, I'd have just dropped the bass rod in the water and said "here you go"

Chris

Was fishing with my father in a Pa. state lake in about four feet of water and a Musky swam under the boat can't be sure about size but was wider than the boat after swimming under it swam after some some Canada Geese with eight chicks swiming behind when up comes a fin like a shark and takes two chicks and dived down under biggest fish i have ever seen.

Re: 43" musky released, PIC link

I caught my first Tiger Musky in Idaho a few weeks ago. They released some sterile ones in this mountain lake to kill the stunted brook trout so they could restock it with bigger brookies. Caught one ~25", cousin got it in the net meant for brook trout, hook got caught in the net, and the fish fell out. Finally landed one in the canoe 4 days later, caught on a rapala. 23.5", tasted mighty fine Then we finally saw a billboard over on the next camp site that said 40" minimum. Ooops. Guess we need to look for the regs before we start fishing It was the biggest fish I ever caught, turns out it was just a midget fish.
