Large Musky and where to find them

Recommended Posts

The largest musky on record was caught in New York not Michigan. As a New York fisherman I can't figure out why the biggest fish in Emerald Lake are walleye. We have huge musky and pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass, big catfish and carp as well as fantastic crappie fishing.

Not on record. That looks like muskies caught in 2017. The largest IGFA recognized record musky was caught in 1949 by Cal Johnson on Lac Courte Oreilles (which is right outside my window as I type this... granted, frozen at the moment). It weighed 67 lbs, 8 oz.

Louis Spray might have caught a larger one in Chippewa Flowage the same year but it is no longer officially recognized.

There is a reason that Hayward, WI is the Musky Capital of the World.
