Species: Hybrid Muskie

Date Caught: 07/06/2011

Kept / Released: Released

Region of Catch: Region 1

Length: 46 inches

Weight: 28

Lure / Bait used: Lure | 6 in black and red Mepps Giant Killer Spinner

I was fishing the Susquehanna River near Muncy Pa on July the 6th at one of my favorite musky spots. I had spotted a couple muskies through out the morning. I was throwing a Meps Giant Killer spinner black and red color by some sunken trees. After 3 or 4 casts over the tree this GIANT attacked my spinner in about 4 ft of water. I fought the fish for roughly 20-25 minutes. My good friend Arron Baysore aided me in landing the fish safely and measuring and weighing it, so I could return the fish to the water to get bigger. My goal is to catch a 50 plus incher in the Susquehanna River, maybe someday in the future myself or my son can catch this GIANT again.
