17.3 lb. Muskellunge (Muskie) caught by Jeff Rappa fishing in New Jersey on 06/09/12
36.0" / 17.3 lb. Muskellunge (Muskie) caught by Jeff Rappa fishing on Saturday June 09, 2012 at 20:11 near Penns Grove in Salem County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a Rage Toad W/ 6/0 Gamagatsu off set worm hook a Frog by Strike King Lure Company

While hunting for Largemouth I made a cast adjacent to a sunken road bed, top water explosion and 10-15 mins later my stepson netted this 17 pound monster. Hooked to side of mouth with out a leader very lucky to have boated this fish. DOD Ponds in Carneys Point N.J. stocking program dropped two batches of musky there 10 yrs ago and last year.Great fishery.

I believe the stocking program put northern strain in, 10 and 2 years ago, Its a WMA run program. I haven't heard of any down there.

Was it a Tiger Musky or the full strain breed that can reproduce.
