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. 😝

      Glad to hear that construction is starting, thanks for the updates!   Would be cool to get a periodic picture or two of the construction over time for those who happen to swing through Cook and stop by. Appreciate the info.

      Ice on the majority of lakes on the Iron Rage excluding big water and the mine pits.  I did see someone out today in a hub shelter on a smaller lake.  I'm shooting for a Red Lake trip Sunday if not I'll be fishing smaller waters around Grand Rapids

      Its icing up pretty good from LF to Fort already.  Big change overnight last night.
    • monstermoose78
      Yes someone went through on skogman

      On the south end...  Most open water anglers put away the boats and are looking forward to ice fishing.  Ice forming on back bays and on different parts of the big lake.  With the cold snap, things are coming along nicely.  When the time is right, resorts will communicate when initial ice accesses will be available.  That time is not yet, but it won't be too long!  On the Rainy River...   A few anglers out braving the elements with good success, but for the most part, anglers have boats put away for the year.  Some anglers fished last week with decent success and some big walleyes.  With increased current this fall, river ice will be suspect.  Back bays iced up. Up at the NW Angle...  Ice is forming throughout the Angle.  Some reports around the inlet of 3 inches of ice, but no ice travel is recommended.  Most bays and some areas throughout islands iced up.  NW Angle resorts will communicate when ice fishing begins.

      Just saw the report

      Heard a rumor that someone went through the ice on Skogman.  Anyone know for sure?

      Cripes, I better get the boat out one last time this week.  Although I'm sure the river will be open for a few more weeks.      
    • leech~~
      That's ok.  Now that your here may be you can post something more current!  Welcome.  😉
