Monster muskie found on Mille Lacs exceeds state record
Earlier this month, Gary Gilbert and his wife stumbled upon a decaying 59½-inch muskie.

Gary Gilbert had no business catching a monster muskie that measured two inches longer than the state record.

He and his wife, Ann, wanted walleyes. Since Opening Day this year on Mille Lacs, they have caught and released more than 250 of them, including many over 20 inches.

But on June 17, the hot bite had to wait. They launched their boat about noon from the public access in Shaw-Bosh-Kung Bay, south of Garrison. Three miles east of the landing, still motoring to their fishing hole, they saw what looked like a giant walleye, belly up.

“I was feeling kind of bad about it,” Gary said. “I thought, ‘That’s probably the biggest walleye I’ve ever seen.’ ”

Instead, the Becker couple had stumbled upon a decaying 59½-inch muskie. Death blanched its coloring, but its body was fully intact.

“Look at the size of this thing,” Gary remembered saying as the lunker stretched out across the bow of his 18¾-foot-long Lund Pro Guide boat.
