Record Musky Caught in Idaho Lake

MCCALL, Idaho (AP) — The tiger musky is known as a ravenous striped carnivore capable of quickly gobbling up perch, small mouth bass and other unfortunate prey. Such a rich diet also helps it get pretty big, as Idaho resident Edward Kalinowski found out this month.

He was fishing Little Payette Lake when he hooked a 44.26 pound musky, measuring a full 50 ½ inches long with a 25-inch girth. The Spokesman-Review reports Kalinowski’s big catch is a record for Idaho, smashing a 12-year-old mark by a mile and then some.

A Montana man back in 2001 pulled a 38-pounder from Hauser Lake in northern Idaho, the previous record. The hybrid tiger musky, a product of muskellunge and northern pike parents, has been stocked for trophy fisheries in several Idaho lakes.
