Article from the Grand Rapids Press: http://www.mlive.com/outdoors/index.ssf/2009/10/state_record_muskie_caught_in.html This fish was caught by an angler who was willing to put it back. He tried unsuccessfully to revive it for an hour before deciding to keep it and was sorry that it didn't swim away. A 50-lb 8oz Great Lakes Muskie, beats the old record of 48-lbs set in 1984. And the dude was going to trying to put it back. I think the conservation style of fishing might be catching on, how many would have kept this fish without any consideration? I might have, at one time, bravo to this guy (Kyle from Rapid City in the article).
