That cant be WORLD record, The National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame lists the world record as 51 pounds and 3 ounces, pulled from Lac Vieux along the Michigan-Wisconsin border in 1919.
Washington state record is 31.25 pounds
South Dakota state record is 37 pounds, 7 ounce
North Dakota 46-pound 8-ounce as examples
Maybe record through ice?

I think with a tip up on the ice.
What a great fish. Did you see it Bear? It's get me fired up to get out there. I'm guessing there must be one just a couple of ounces bigger.

Click the link and check it out. It is a Ice Fishing on Tip-up world record. Beat the old one from MA by 5 oz.

I saw it the next day at Bearwood (Rose is mounting it). Was there when they weighed in #2 for the derby 24 lbs even still an awsome fish. In total three Tigers were weighed in over 20 lbs for the weekend.
Bigger indeed, I know they boated a 32 lb'r last summer out there was in the paper the next week.

Do you think a " Quick Strike Rig" for terminal tackle will work on fish that big or maybe one large treble would be better ?
