Twenty-year-old angler lands massive 57-inch muskie - should tie the Minnesota record!
Andrew Slette, of Hawley Minnesota, had a pretty productive day of muskie fishing on June 25. While fishing near Detroit Lakes, he hooked and landed a mammoth muskie - which measured an incredible 57-inches long.
The fish should tie a state record once the required paper work is submitted, and possibly other records.
The fish was successfully released to fight another day.
Talk about a beast of a muskie! It certainly would be worth the '10,000 casts' it is said it takes to land just one of these majestic fish.
