I caught and released this brute during my Northern Wisconsin vacation in June. The best part was Mom and the 3 kids were in the boat with me. It was pretty hecktic in the boat with 3 little ones fighting for a view. Samantha is 6 and was trying to net the thing with a net built for crappies. I'm telling them to stay back so I can hand land the fish. Everything turned out great. I didn't catch alot of fish that week but did pretty good on the size of fish; 37"musky, 31" pike 25" walleye.
