Just looking through The Mirror paper and a man caught a 57", 44.8 pound Muskellunge out of Penetang Bay on his Red Devil spoon, there is a picture and this fish is MASSIVE!!

yeah that's the one Wayne has be chasing and almost catching

 

 

 

Riley Lacroix hauled in a 54-inch, 44.8-pound muskie while fishing in Penetanguishene Bay on June 23. The Penetanguishene resident had cast a Red Devil spoon lure not far from Hindson Marine when the monster muskie hit. After a lengthy battle, Lacroix hauled the exhausted fish onboard by hand – going after pickerel, he hadn’t bothered bringing a net.

I work there. There are some big musky in that water. Fishing for pickeral?? with a red devil? Maybe, but my guess is that he was after pike with that lure.

They probably mean Pike when they say Pickeral, because we all know the proper name is Walleye :P

Glen and I were on Wayne's boat the day he had that follow. That musky looked like a railroad tie. Could be the same fish.

Classic example of someone with little clue as to fishing, catching a fish that I am still dreaming of.

Awesome fish ... that area holds some monsters for sure ... some say the next world record ... that's why the size limit was recently raised to 54" .... I wouldn't doubt it based on some of the fatties I have seen cruising around there

 

 

Too bad based on the picture ... this one (which is probably old as me - and maybe even as old as dawg) won't likely live to be that record ... hope I am wrong about that... I'd love to meet her someday

Congrats to Riley! That is a very nice fish and to hear that he caught it on a Red Devil, I am jealous.

Does this mean I shouldn't be using my Red Devil to catch pickerel/walleye? This is not good for me LOL

I am amazed that people don't know that a red and white daredevil can catch fish. Used it all my life and caught just about everything. It attracts more than one variety of fish and that is a fact.

 

If pike, musky and walleye are in the same area and you use a red and white daredevil you just might catch all three including a bass or two.

I really have a feeling that fish died. If he got a weight on it, it was probably out of the water a long time.

It's to bad to see a monster all beat up like that.

 

Is it just me, or is there a rope through his gills?

 

Nice fish either way.

I'm not condoning the practice with that kind of handling but it was let go and it did supposedly swim away.

Long thin fish for sure.

Well, hopefully it didn't end up floating in the bay later. Wish i could have gotten out there, thursday it rained, friday was too rough, and todays too windy and rough. Oh well, saw the poker run and some sweet off shore boats.

 

Hopefully it calms down tonight!!!

    • Any Eastern Lake Erie fisherman here?

      It's been quite some time since I've posted on this forum. There was a time when I would check in several times a day. I made the move to self-employment a few years ago and now I have more time to fish. If my customers had their way I'd be working 7 days a week 🙂 but sometimes you have to put your foot down. I also upgraded from a 14 foot Lund to a 20-foot Tahoe. This allows me to do both pleasure boating with family and fishing. Bought it used back in 2017 and immediately had it fit with a Mot

    • Thermacell units any good?

      Mosquitoes bad this year. Likely to do with all the moisture.   The reviews are mostly positive on the Thermacell units. Butane heats a pad that gives off a repellant. Not so good in the wind unless you put up wind of where you are.  What’s the scoop?

      Welcome to summer all!!! (well sort-of) Heading up with a buddy and his young lad to the Espanola area for a few days mid July.

Our plan is to target Wally's and possibly trek in for a brookie or 2 if the logistics of the lakes work out.

    • kapuskasing - Any advice on what to do?

      Hey Guys, Ive got some work up in Kapuskasing so I will be spending a couple of days up there in 2 weeks time. Which also means that I will have some evenings to burn. My guess is that its still ice fishing season up there. I also know it lies on a river so maybe thats open to some casting? Any tips at all that a local or someone with some knowledge could recommend I would greatly appreciate it. Feel free to PM or just reply here.
