    That personal best only lasted 4 months. Finally caught a 4 footer @ 48-1/4". Great landing story you can probably relate to: We fish alone with radios in boat so buddies can come to take the picture. Hooks got tangled in net after the fish was about a foot into the net, and couldn't get the slob into the net. Fish then takes another run, and net slips out of my hand, so now I got the fish (not in the net), and the hooked net 20 feet from the boat. Brought fish (and net) back to boat and hand landed it. Removed hook to seperate from net, and then got net bag opened to put fish back in water. My buddy arrives as I'm putting the fish back in the net, and he's wondering what I'm doing, since most of the time the fish stays in the net until the photo guy arrives. I told him, he didn't want to know. Enjoy!

    Nice fish! With a happy ending too. Looks about the size of the one I lost on Friday. Was at the chip and she crushed a sucker, buddy went to net it and, it went into the net, then out of the net, and..... my hooks decided to stay in the net. It's ok we're still on speaking terms.

    Congrats, awesome fish and story!

    Good one. I hope you'll soon start a thread where tips will be given to newbies like me.

    Be sure to check this girl out at Joe Fittante's booth at the Milwaukee Musky Expo this coming weekend. I ordered a replica of this fish at the show last year (2016), and Joe let me know he will be displaying it in his booth, and that I can pick it up this Sunday (2/12/2017).

    I haven't seen it myself yet, and I'm a little excited to say the least.

    Can't wait...

    Enjoy it. Seeing your replica for the first time, and then hanging it up (I know you've already picked the spot), is -- almost -- as enjoyable as catching the fish.

    Post a pic of it here once you get it.

    Pictures do not do Joe's work justice. It looks better in person, but here's the picture after it made it home safely.
