St Louis River Duluth MN Tiger Muskie

This fish was caught within the last week.  I am having a hard time finding  a lot of information on it here at work.  But it shattered the Minnesota recored and darn near tipped the world record.  So if somone could post the stats on this I know I found a lof info I could not open just google searching the photo title.

Maybe it would have been the world record if it didn't go pee pee.

Sota,could'nt be confirmed as a minnesota record fish as the state was shut down,we had another monster caught last week as well only a "clear musky or leech lake strain" this baby was 57"s long and weighed in at over 55lbs but could'nt be certified because of the shut down.What a piss'er.

The poor guy had no choice to release his once in a lifetime record.  50" minimum.

48 Inches is the mark, not 50.  Unless there is some specific regulation on this lake.  I'm sure Snow knows.  a 50" minimum for Hybrids just sounds dumb to me as well.

Sota,thats what it takes to make the record book,most lakes here are 42"s here unless its a designated muskie lake,then 48"s.either way that sucker is a pig,hybrids are stocked fish,looking at the shoreline this fish could've been caught in the metro area,the current state record was  caught on lake Calhoun in downtown minneapolis,to lazy to look it up but I think it was 33lbs,not bad for a hybrid as they grow slow.

Dont they grow faster, but not as large?  I always thought that to be the case.  Get a good bit of size in a hurry but peak out faster then the muskie

Tiger muskies grow faster than pure muskies, but do not attain the ultimate size of their pure cousins as the tiger muskie do not live as long. ...

You two should ask Warvin.  He would know.  Even though his thread is gone.
