52 incher

BIG Musky Caught while jigging for Walleye!!

Dale Bowman and the Chicago Sun Times crowned this catch as their Fish Of The Week (FOTW) in November. 

Scott Budzinski was out jigging for Walleye on the Turtle Flambeau Flowage when we was surprised by two Musky on his line.  He was using 1/8th ounce invasion jig and a minnow with only 10lb line.  He first caught and released a 42 incher.  30 minutes later he landed this giant 52 incher which we have pictured here.  Click HERE for the entire article and quotes from Scott about the trip.   Both fish were released safely back to their habitat.
