It was reported to me by a Mille Lacs Resort owner that a 54.8# Musky was taken by gill net today on the east side of Mille Lacs Lake in Minnesota. It was supposedly 56" long. That is all the information I have at this time. If true, it likely would be a Minnesota state record if it had been taken by hook and line.

Update: I talked to the source again and this information comes directly from the Aitkin Fisheries office.

Anything wrapped up in those nets are dead by the time they get to 'em. It was killed. Too bad they never got the thrill of bringing that monster in on a line. What a waste. It'll probably end up in a pile of fish guts, uncleaned and sitting on somebody's driveway.

They WILL have to claim that as part of their quota. Once the tribe reaches their quota for that species, they are done netting for ALL species.

Here is a quote from the Fond du Lacs website:
The FDLRMD also would like to stress the importance of releasing northern pike from gill nets, if the pike appear able to survive. This is extremely important this year. Fond du Lac has a 25,428 lbs walleye allocation, but only a 1387 lb northern pike quota. Note that even though this is a 423 pound increase over last year, it is not likely that FDL will be able to gain additional pike throughout the season. The regulations state that once FDL harvests their quota for any species, then netting is shut down for all species. So once FDL has harvested 1387 lbs of northern pike, we are done netting, even if we’ve only harvested 100 lbs of our 25,428 lbs walleye quota. Please keep that in mind when you are pulling your nets.
