Hey everyone. I just recieved an e-mail from a friend of mine whos son helped a guy in Sparrow Lake this past saturday net a 54 inch 50 plus pound muskie. The email is real, my friends son is in one of the pictures so I know its a real pic from around here. Apparently it broke 4 rods and was kept only because it was to worn out after the battle (don't shoot the messenger) I'm not sure if I can post the pics only because they aren't mine.

What a waste of a fish if it wasn't put back in the lake.

From thrashing around in the boat is what it said. Also it was tangled up in the net and took a while to get it free, which is why it was kept.

It would need a girth of 28" to weigh 50+ lbs. A pretty nice fish. Looking forward to seeing it.

Wife and I broke one rod hauling a salmon into our 14ft Lund. She flopped it from the net right on top of my pole so breaking four on a big muskie I can understand. Looking forward to seeing it as Roy stated.....

I wouldn't post the pics. You're only opening yourself (and your friend) up to scrutiny....which is really unfair if the person is just a recreational angler who lucked into a giant fish (whether 50 lbs or not).

MY GOD

read the post
he said died, so they kept it, fish die, and that's a fact of fishing people need to start excepting

as soon as I read it I thought maybe the four broken rods were form the fish thrashing around in the boat
many people who don't catch a lot of muskie are not equipped to handle them

and like most people they miss judge the size of the fish they have caught, they are fishermen and just caught a monster the excitement and lack of anything to compare it to, leads to over estimating ......

I see no problem with questioning a post on things you don't understand or don't seem to make sense, but to just jump on it and accuse is a little much guys

The Fish was caught and for some reason died. Very well respected guys as well caught it. Did everything they could to revive it so the guy is going to mount it now. This stuff happens. Nothing wrong with that as far as I'm concerned. 42lbs 7oz, 53" long. No need for fish tales on this one. I'm sure the guy will post if need be. Congrats to the guy who caught it. :thumbsup_anim: :thumbsup_anim:
