The fish was caught this past month at a southern Ohio lake while bass fishing. Note, no leaves on the trees yet. The fish was photographed, measured approximately 55 inches, then released. No weight, but it was a thick fish! I take exception to the starts with "L" and ends with "E" comment

When ya catch a Musky like that ya can exception to just about anything.That is a noteworthy Musky for sure. Ya might have released the Ohio state record. It weighed 55lbs. and was caught in 1972 I think in Piedmont Lake. Be nice to know the girth. Good job on releasing that Monster .I've never seen one that big in Ohio. Good Luck.

Yes that should qualify as a Husky Musky!

Not surprising given how old the fish must have been. Apparently he had a great life! If he'd have been taken in for a state record then he'd died anyway. Gotta give the guy major credit for any release at all!

That's the only reason my 51 1/2" from Piedmont is mounted. Caught on light line and she was exhausted when finally landed. Tried for over 1/2 hr to revive her but no luck so I spent the money and had her mounted. Know it was a female, the taxidermist said the egg sacks were empty and nothing in the stomach and she still weighed 40 lbs. 12 oz.
