For some reason, this skipped by me and I never heard anything about it. But it ended up in my mail today and I found it interesting.

I remember seeing this a few years back....now that's a gator! Kind of makes a guy wonder if any other potential record breakers have just ended up in the freezer?

wtrfwlr- Are you talking about the one caught several weeks ago.. there is a rumor that stated it was 55-56 inches with a 33 inch girth and was released. The 4 fishermen were fishing for walleyes when they hooked the muskie. As there it is some people are saying its the new world record. I read the story of the fishermen who was with his buddy when they boated that pig.

Quackills9...you meant these four fisherman were fishing for crappies a few weeks ago.

I have not heard this rumor, but I hope they had a camera. That would be a tough release without a flash on board.

Anybody else hear about this?

I read walleye :-? ... you can find the post made by the fishermen that was with, but I dont think I would be allowed to put the site on this forum. He said they got some pictures and released her, but didnt want people to see it and would think its the Muskie Capital, and the guy who caught it said he has talked to some taxidermists for a replica and when he mentions the length and girth.. the taxidermist laughs....

Heard that story awhile ago and got the e-mail. Kind of sad, not that the fish was eaten but that the fishierman wasn't able to profit from it. Looks like he has alot of mouths to feed.
