I don't fish for Muskie but this article about the world Muskie record by Louie Spray is still good reading.. In the Duluth News Tribune (DNT)today.

Yeah, I've been watching this. There were some other posts on it. Seems some people won't leave this alone.

More info...

I don't think any of this will go away until someone catches the NEW world record. Maybe it'll be me! But then again, probably not...

This is not unique to the muskie record. I seem to remember the walleye record of 25 lbs. is under constant attack as is the LM bass record of 22-4, and I know down here in Fla. salt water records are questioned all the time.

Muskellunge history is being re-written.

This time period will be looked back upon as highly significant in the freshwater fishing world.

It all makes for some very good entertainment on the forums thats for sure!

62lbs or higher is the bar 61.5 to be exact! (my opinion)

I have a question for you all. Doesn't it seem that there will be no real big fish catches any more? Because of the way we have been over fishing for years. I know they are on the come back. But do you really think they will make it back to those huge sizes? Not and expert here...

Hey frawi......MFP is a cool site, eh!

Maybe I can address your question/observation on big fish

Several Muskellunge in the 50lb range have been reported in recent years, many are verified authentic.

You are actually beginning to see some of the largest specimans caught in the history of Musky fishing.

Minnesota in particular (and its anglers) have done an incredible job at building a trophey class fishery and should be applauded.

The abilty to locate and contact these "super fish" has never been greater. Catching one is an all together different issue. The numbers thrown around in the old days sort of gave many anglers (and tourists) a false idea of what the growth ceiling is......some might go so far as to say....."they dont get that big".

Dig up a photo of the 53lb-er caught and relased on Mille Lacs(2 years ago now?)....a meal away from 60lbs....they felt it was a younger fish, smaller head with room to grow and likley underestimated its weight.....it's still swimm'n out there!

Those "huge sizes" of the past are not back, they are here and now!
