45.0" / 17.0 lb. Muskellunge (Muskie) caught by Jeff Behrend fishing on Monday August 18, 2008 at 11:48 in Lake Monona 1.32 km from Madison in Dane County, Wisconsin (WI), United States North America using a Hyrbrid bait Joe Bucher Swimming Joe 8" Perch colo

Just another night of muskie fishing. The wind had been pounding the NE section of shoreline for the last 3 days. I threw my bait out about 5 feet from that shoreline and starting ripping it back hard and fast. After about 5 cranks I put in an extended pause and when I went for that first crank afterwards I felt the lure get hit, felt the weight and the rod double up. The rest was just history. She was more of a feisty one then my 47" she didn't stay deep she went straight to the surface and started headshaking. This muskie was caught from shore as well CPR!!
