23lb Musky from Rochester, WI – User Submission

Musky caught on Fox River in Rochester, WI.

Musky caught on the Fox River in Rochester, WI.

MorningMoss reader, Brett S., caught this great Musky on the Fox River in Rochester, Wisconsin.  It weighed in at 23 pounds and stretched some 43 inches.  Solid catch, especially for the Fox River!

The biggest and baddest Muskies we’ve seen from Wisconsin reader-submissions have all come from Green Bay.  This beautiful 51-incher and this 54.5-incher both came from the Bay of Green Bay.  Green Bay is also home to the 72-pound Musky that may be the biggest ever caught.

Thanks for submitting, Brett!

I grew up with a small 2-acre pond in my parents' backyard. I fish by tying fishing line, hook, and bait to an empty water bottle and tossing it out on the water. I then sit on the dock and drink beer and wait for the bottle to get dragged around by some catfish, and proceed to chase it around in the paddle boat.
