    Thumbs up Muskie caught from bay may have been record-setter

    From Wisconsin Outdoors Fun:
    "For years we have heard that at some point the bay of Green Bay was going to produce a world-record fish. Whether it was a walleye, smallmouth bass or muskellunge, people have been recognizing this body of water as a world-class fishery for a long time, and they were just waiting for a world-class fish to come out of it.

    John Grover may have landed that fish.

    Grover, a 44-year-old from Green Bay, was fishing for walleyes at the mouth of the bay May 9 when he set the hook into a fish he knew was not a marble eye. Using 17-pound monofilament line, he fought it for almost an hour, and blew out his reel in the process. Finally, he was able to tire this muskie out, and face landed him using gloves because he didn?t want to damage the fish. Grover brought the fish to shore briefly, took a picture with the giant and after a few minutes of reviving the giant specimen, let her go back into the water."
