Corey Kitzmann of Davenport, Iowa now holds Minnesota’s brand-new state record catch-and-release muskellunge, a 57¼-inch monster caught on Lake Vermilion.

I think there should be a catch and release state record category for EVERY fish.  Not just these larger ones.  Not everyone is interested in killing a fish that could potentially be a stated record.  I understand that they're trying to protect these larger species of fish but there should be a C & R option for all of them, not just some of them.

 

Way to go on the muskie.

Us Iowans keep your economy alive.  I can't tell you how much money my family pours in a year.  You guys up there have a great state.  I hope to live there some day. Don't hate on us.  Congrats on a Monster.  Oh and Go Hawks.

No Worries--All is well and forgiven. 😁   ...Until that Hawks comment!  😣 

Just for that I got half a mind to run down to Okoboji and catch me a state record Iowa fish just to spite you!  (...and this time I might take a picture/register it, because ya'll know I've caught numerous 32+ inch walleyes all >18# that I just don't photograph or document... ...Ha!)

And we still don't know the approximate area of the lake this great fish was caught in.   I'm hoping east since that will suck all the hardcore musky guys  to the other end of the lake and they won't be bothering me. 😁

 

I'm thinking it was under Musky Tom's dock

The angler's family cabin is on Grassy Point, but who knows exactly where it was caught.

Thanks.  That's close enough, although....

 

Right in the middle.... more ambiguity.  😁

I have to say Iwegians are not noted for having much of a sense of humor though. 😝

      Wanted to start a post for members to share what they do to put a few more fish topside ,,,, secrets of course you never wanted to share 😆. Since it's hardwater season, I'll start with this...   The addition off a colored glow bead over a favorite presentation can turn a good day into a great of catching 😀

      Wishes from us for a full and speedy recovery Cookie.  Still one of my favorite memories of the crappie days was the crappie "poker hand" contest you had there. Sooooo many laughs that day.   You'll be back on the lake, better than ever! Get well Cookie!!

      😢😢 Somewhere up there today, he's sitting on the far side of a fishhouse, just past a duct tape line,  saying “shaky, could you put this one in the bucket for me?” RIP Doc

      Sad news ... Prayers sent, get well soon

      It looks like a bunch of snow fell overnight. Hopefully this doesn't have a huge impact on ice conditions.

      Sorry to hear about Cookie.   Can anyone share what type of accident it was?   Ref

      Everything I’ve heard most guys have had nothing but good things to say about this setup! Can’t wait to try it. Planning on keeping the 8” if I want a bigger hole or chasing other species. Think I might pickup the clam adjustable extension for a little more length so it’s not so short. And maybe a few spare bigger dewalt batteries.

      Can't go wrong with that set up . I have similar with Milwaukee M18 . I have a converted 6 '' Mora and an 8'' Nils. I have quick connect pins so changing bits is easy. I use the 6'' to find fish and drill an 8'' hole for fishing. You can also drill the 6'' close to the 8 '' for your transducer.
