I'm sure you all heard this on the news, but I haven't seen anything here on it. The muskie that the DNR took and then gave back...

Tom James has his disputed muskie back.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources confiscated the 52-inch fish last month after the Mound angler caught it through the ice Jan. 13 on Lake Minnetonka. James kept the fish because he had checked the DNR's regulation booklet and found the season was listed as closing Feb. 24.

But the DNR had actually closed the season Dec. 15, a change James and many other anglers were unaware of.

The DNR tracked down the fish and its owner after pictures circulated on the Internet. A conservation officer gave James a written warning, but no fine. The DNR kept the fish.
