Casting for walleyes and saw this girl in the water. 2nd time by with the jig, she took a nip at it. Hooked her perfectly in the top lip. 25 minute fight on light rod. My first musky ever.... only took me 48 years. Lol But what a giant. Didn't have a scale, but had the tape measure. 44 1/2" with 19 1/2" girth! Not sure on weight, but full of eggs!

      Nice muskie. If I had to guess, probably 25+ lbs.

      Lol, I'm sure there are a lot more qualified people to give you pointers on here than me Aiden. That was my first muskie ever. My only suggestion would be, ...more use the biggest WHOPPER PLOPPER!!!!!!! Lol It's my new favorite lure. Inline spinners, plastics are always promising. Good luck and tight lines!

      i'm always so amazed to see huge musky caught on light gear! I've had them cut #50 flouro instantly like a hot knife through butter. If they get it in ...more their teeth right, it's over! nice job!
