Massive Muskellunge emerges from Rainy Lake

Stan's friend Wayne catches a lot of fish. So when he's impressed by one, it is worth taking note. Today Wayne writes from International Falls with a fish photo:

My friend Tony went bass fishing Monday with a couple of his Canadian friends in Seine Bay on Rainy Lake. Fishing was slow and they were about to quit when this fish hit his bass bait on an 8 lb test line. One hour later they landed it -- with their hands -- on the fourth attempt. They took measurements (28 inch girth). Tony hasn't calculated it yet but they figure it will be over 50 lbs.
Tony's 200 hp Honda blew up in June. He just bought a newer boat and wanted to get in one last day of fishing.
Not a bad day.
