Record Tiger Muskie Caught Through The Ice!

Its not often you see a big muskie caught through the ice, especially not a tiger muskie!

Record tiger muskie

    “Lakeland resident Tom Boise, 49, caught a gargantuan, 27-pound, 5-ounce tiger muskie through the ice on Otisco Lake Saturday while fishing in a derby sponsored by the Moondance Restaurant. The fish appears to have broken the existing world record for a tiger muskie caught with a tip-up, according to a spokesman today from the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame in Hayward, Wisc.”

The fish was 45.5 inches long and had a girth of 22.5 inches!

Oddly enough I had a girlfriend who lived fairly close to that lake many years ago, and I never bothered to fish it. If only I had known there were big muskie around!
