I, like most musky fisherman, dream of the day when they catch a 50″ musky. 50 inches is more than just a trophy, to some it’s the holy grail. To hold and release such an amazingly beautiful predator is like nothing else in this world I can explain. It’s probably on par with getting married, or having children… But I’ll take a 50″ musky over either of those any day of the week. So imagine if you can, what it would be like to catch one that’s nearly 60 inches long- cause that’s exactly what Jake Heuer did!
Holy crap!!!!!!!! I just released a 57 inch muskie!!!
I saw the monster just sitting in the weeds and I burned a glitter tail right by her face and she came charging at it then went into the figure 8 and eight it!!!! I was all by myself and had to net it all by myself. I caught it about 70 yards away from shore right on the edge of a weed bed casting a Glitter tail # 10. Lake vermilion!! A couple people saw it from the dock so I went over and had them take pictures for me and look at the measuring stick too…because I just could not believe my eyes…57!! After drifting in I was so close to shore, so I took my socks and shoes off and hopped in to help revive her. It took kinda a while but she swam off perfectly. It was pretty fun to be in the water with her. I have to thank Spring Bay Resort, Steve, Dayis, and Joe Amundson for welcoming me here for the summer! And for letting me use one of there rental boats while mine is in the marina. Can not thank them enough!!!!
