    thats one fine ski for the river down there, that local i talked with in the spring said the end of may the skis come up in there,i,ve caught a couple small ones there yrs ago while tossing jigs but not that size............good one.........
  4. Nice fish! Did you get a measurement? On light tackle , they are amazing.
  5. no measurement we were in a hurry to get him back in....but i would say about 38-40 inches and about 20#.....ya 10# test it was a blast
  6. Wow that thing is a gem! I love the colors on it! 10 lb test!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thats great! Thanks for letting her go.

    she was definately safely released... We always say maybe we should of mounted that one after watching them swim away but truth be told that is not a fish of a lifetime... Amazing fish nice size but we cant wait for that first 50+... We were fishing small mouth and walleye but the river is very low... We seen a ton of carp down there some with some nice size... I have to go down there with the fly rod and waders sometime when the water is low...We did end up with about 6 eyes but they were all small...

    seeing fish like that make me want to give up on walleye and break out the big fish lures.
  13. Seeing a fish of that caliber down there blows my mind. Especially where you you guys caught it.

    Ive fished there for ages and have never caught anything like that! Ive given up on the dam it seems since I always get skunked there.

    That is a beautiful ski .Great job on both your parts. A BIGGER CONGRATS on the release . Little tuff watching her swim away I'm sure . Hopefully you will be rewarded with a 50+ incher someday for your part on catch/release .They are one amazeing fish.
  15. Wow - that is one HUGE fish!!! Kudos to you AND your buddy - that must have been an amazing fight.

    Will show that pic to my son tonight. He'll be GREEN with envy.

    KSUFLASH respect our rivers please

    when were you down there? day and time? i fish there alot and i was there on tuesday june 5th between 10 30 am and 3 30 pm. i had a muskie on the line and fought it for about 8 minutes. got it to my feet but my net was up river by my dad. lure came lose and i lost it. it was nowhere near the size of yours though. i would say about 24 - 27 inches. very nice catch. im hoping to get up there again today.
