From the Spokane Spokesman Review: FISHING – Idaho’s 12-year-old tiger muskie record has been smashed by Edward Kalinowski of New Meadows, Idaho, while fishing on Little Payette
Lake on Aug. 6, Fish and Game Department officials have confirmed.
Kalinowski landed the 44.26-pound lunker on a 12-pound test line with a Neon Magic lure. The fish is 50.5 inches long with a 25-inch girth.
The previous record was 38 pounds, 7 ounces, 48.25 inches with a 22.5-inch girth, caught June 16, 2001, in Hauser Lake by Douglas Butts of Eureka Mont., on a Mepps
Bucktail Yellow lure.
Tiger muskies have been stocked for trophy fisheries in about 10 Idaho lakes and seven in Washington, including Silver, Newman and Curlew.
