Massive Muskie Caught In Illinois Has Missed The State Record – He Let it Go !

Nick Wechet and his fiancée Nicole Malkowski were fishing the bank of the Fox River near Carpenterville, Illinois when Nick hooked a beast of a muskie on a devil head spoon. They didn’t have a measuring tape or ability to weigh it so after a few snaps, Nick released his prized catch to fight another day. As you can see in the pics – the muskie could have easily gone 50 inches and just may have taken the current state record which sits at 38 pound, 8-ounces taken back in 2002. Good on ya Nick for releasing it buddy.
