Thought I'd give this its own thread.

REALLY hoping that someone could post of pic of the 55-inch-long, 31-inch-girth caught by a Shamrock Marina customer last week, as mentioned by Randy.

C'mon, we wanna see it!!!! gringrin

LengthxGirthxGirth/800 puts it at 66.09lbs to be exact, but the formula gets flawed by design on genetic freaks of such proportion as this....

So, assuming it's built like me with a beer <insert ciscoe> belly and not that thick all the way through it's body length let's round off to simply say it would be 60+lbs.

Big V is a lake that could certainly host such a beast. Closest I came a few weeks ago on V was a sumberged timber I snagged that was pushing a 30 inch girth....

31" girth? I have not seen one out of vermillion even close to that number (or any lake for that matter). Like you Steve I would love to see that fish.

I'm not calling out Randy. He's an honest and standup guy. I just wanna see a pic that beats the current state record by several pounds. And there's no doubt in my mind the state record has been broken several times in the last bunch of years on any of half a dozen northern MN lakes! smilesmile

But ya gotta kill it to win it, and the big majority of talented/dedicated musky folks don't kill it. smile

Sorry guys.....I didn't see a picture either. But the customer is a quality guy that comes here to fish, not stroke his ego. If he says he caught this fish, he caught the fish. And it was witnessed. He has supplied me pictures for our web site on other big fish but I do not know if I will be getting a copy of this one. If I do, I will be sure to put it up here.

There is fish that big in there. Seems a little early for a 31 inch girth but possible. I caught a 53.5x28 in Vermilion so of course there is fish way bigger!!! Would love to see a picture of any fish over 45 pounds.

Let's hope he sends one along to you, Randy. Must be hard not to prod him a little. gringrin

Is the 67-8 Cal Johnson fish still considered the world record? I see the IGFA lists it. So if the stats are right on the fish just caught in V, by the time the big ones are gorging on spawning whitefish/tulibees, this fish could be a world record. Coupla 1.5 pound whitefish in the stomach would be all it'd take. gringrin

Another "legendary" fish. grin

Well you have to respect the wishes of the person that caught it I guess. It's pretty tough the keep a tight lid on a digital picture though (even only amongst friends) at some point or another it usually falls through the cracks.

SS... I think he is exactly that. Too much [PoorWordUsage] to be caught about holding the fish to make it look bigger, or no way that could be 55" or whatever measurement claimed. I suspect that no one will see it other than immediate friends.

My intent was to only let others know that there are world class fish out there, just have to get out there and find them.

All the die hard muskie anglers already know that Vermilion has xxlarge skies in it. Finding them and getting them to bite is another game...

Kudo's to the guy that released it and kudo's again for keeping it to yourselves.

Hey, this web page / site still operating...WOW!

Add up the hours you all spend on line here an your going to fart bubbles in the end.

I caught a muskie fish recently...biggen too, but no pictures for you.

Still swiming over by Jonny Paul Ringoz place kinda off Georgieboy reef.

smile

To think how fast these fish grew an how many biggens are around is freaky wierd.

Remember when they called her the Dead Sea II.....

grin

Cancer sucks.

If the guy was smart he wouldn't post that photo anywhere and would keep his mouth shut.

You mean so it wouldn't end up on the cover of the Muskies Inc mag? laughgrinwinkwinkwink

A 31" girth does seem kinda big for this early in the fall, but I wasn't there to measure it, so I guess we'll have to take his word for it.

Hard to believe a fish 12 pounds over the current state record, wouldn't get a photo posted some place on the web.

If it was as big as stated it was probably to heavy to lift for a photo..... wink

Yeah, I know when I caught my 80 lber last year, it was too big to fit in the picture so I decided not to take one

      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job
    • gimruis
      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.

      Let’s start this by congratulating Brianf and son for winning their second City Autoglass Walleye Classic last weekend. These guys know how to fish.  We just got to the lake for the season. Chores are almost done and I’m ready to fish.  red(new dog is more yellow)labguy

      I tried starting a 2024 Lake Vermilion Fishing Report topic but it doesn't show up on this board.   Maybe somebody else knows how to do it?
