Big Fish Alert: New Possible World-Record Muskie

A big fish story.
Check it out:

The third muskie that Matt Forjohn of Ambler, Pennsylvania ever caught is likely to put him in the International Game Fish Association’s record book as the holder of the All-Tackle Length world record.

The fish, caught Monday, December 2 on the St. Lawrence River out of Clayton, New York, was 130 centimeters (51.18 inches) long from its lip to the “v” of its tail on an official IGFA measuring device. That made it 2 centimeters longer than the current IGFA All-Tackle length record muskie, which Mark Edwin Carlson of Illinois caught while fishing the Ottawa River on the border of Toronto Ontario and Quebec in June of 2011.

Forjohn’s fish was released and swam away with vigor, according to Capt. Bob Walters, who had the angler as a charter client.
