These gigantic muskellunge are just a samplE of what was caught and released in 2014.
Some say the next world record muskie will be caught in Northwest Ontario. Judging by these photos, I wouldn't be surprised. Dedicated muskie anglers live for the chance to catch a huge muskie which is referred to as the "fish of 10,000 casts". Although some of these muskies were caught trying to fish for walleye or bass!
Congrats to all the anglers that caught (and released) these beautiful massive muskies in 2014.
