We first broke the story about the newest “world record” musky last week. I use quotes because this beauty was released to live another day. As many of you probably know, in order to have a proper world record, the fish has to be weighed on a certified scale and the stomach contents need to be examined. Ultimately the fish will die, which is quite possibly the worst outcome of such a beautiful moment. And probably why I’ll never be a world record holder.
Check out this video from the local news where they talk to the lucky, and responsible, fisherman.
The idea of a separate catch and release category of the world records sounds great, probably a logistical nightmare for the record keeper though.
