Poo Pie, Skylar and I arrived at cemetary point around 0930 with about a half dozen other people on the ice. We set up in 35' with little action for the first hour. Moved into 20' and started catching perch, around 25 for the day. Dirty Curt joind us around 1300 with his two sons. The boys and skylar were able to catch a perch, always great to see how excited they get. In hope of catching a tiger I had a couple of rods rigged for them. I also had another rod with 4lb test and a cobley jig for the smaller fish. At noon I had just released a small perch and was getting my line back to the bottom when my rod went nuts!! My first musky-what a rush!! It took about ten min, 8 great runs, and Poo Pie getttin wet up to his pits to land the fish :D We took a few pics and released the beast back to swim again. My rod measures 30" as you can see the fish is a bit bigger, our guess is around 34" to 35",with a girth of around 17". Have no idea how much he weighed, if you have an idea please let me know. What a fight on the 4lb line and tiny jig. Thanks Poo Pie for the assistance.[attachment=2:13v3haoe]musky01.jpg[/attachment:13v3haoe][attachment=1:13v3haoe]musky02.jpg[/attachment:13v3haoe][attachment=0:13v3haoe]musky03.jpg[/attachment:13v3haoe]

To get a weight estimate here is the formula

length X girth X girth / 800 = aprox weight

Accourding to the your numbers, it should weigh close to 12.6lbs

Nice fish.

Nice fish Puddles. Makes me jealous. I've caught two of the Muskies, but never threw the ice . That has to be exciting on a ice pole and four pound test. Great job!!!
