According to "Field and Stream" magazine, during this past May while fishing for walleyes, John Grover hooked into something very large.  After an extensive battle with his reel giving out, Grover landed a muskie of a lifetime.  After measuring the beast and taking a few photos, Grover released the muskie without weighing it.  The monster measured 64 inches and had a girth of at least 30 inches.  Using known formulas, the fish weighed approximately 72 pounds which would top the current IGFA record of 67.5 pounds caught in 1949 out of Wisconsin.  However, since the fish was not weighed, it cannot qualify for the World record. So, on your next fishing trip, make sure to bring along a scale because you never know what record fish might come on your line!
