If you are reduced to shore fishing like some sort of filth animal, much like we often are, this video is proof that you can still get into big fish from shore. This big fall muskie measured exactly 52 inches!
Was out on the lake this morning/afternoon trying my hardest to get any sort of fish as always,
and boom i was hit well ruined actually with a MONSTER, my personal best fish of 51.5inches and had to be 40lbs give or take?
i was having trouble lifting it out of the net, but once she was out of the net and i got my other hand on her belly for support she only waved once to the camera so i was lucky because she truly was in control from hook set to the release.
Here is the video i hope everyone enjoys it!
Geez Ron, try being more professional next time and stop laughing. HAHA! I’m only kidding, you did a good job telling Jones to man up and lift that leviathan out of the water so we could all see it! If I were there I would have kept laughing and Mr. Jones would have probably released me in to the water right after that musky.
We’ve covered Lake St. Clair musky before, mostly because they’re absolutely massive, and this post is no different. Sure it may not be the biggest musky at 42″ and 25lbs but it’s one of the biggest tiger musky I’ve ever seen*.
* The biggest I’ve ever seen is the Minnesota state record tiger musky after the break.
Lake St Clair is known for having an impressive muskie population, but most of the fish aren’t as big as muskie found in other areas like the St Lawrence and Ottawa River. This past weekend the two massive muskie over 50 inches were caught, including a frightening 56 incher that was registered as 39 pounds!
