A buddy of mine routinely does electroshocking for various surveys for his work at an engineering firm. Primarily being a walleye guy, I'm always interested in seeing any pics of any lunker 'eyes and where they came from.
Recently, he sent me this pic of a monster musky, and wondered how big it really might have been. My jaw dropped when I saw the pic, my first thought was that it was a lifetime trophy.
He stated that it was heavy enough he couldn't hold it with his arms outstretched and figured somewhere around 45 to 50 pounds. He is about 5' 9" tall, maybe 160 lbs, for comparisons sake. Fish was not weighed or measured, and was returned unharmed to the water .
Would love to hear some guesses on size and length from some people who have seen and caught trophy muskies in person. Thanks guys.
