If its the pic I got about a week or two ago I have my doubts as to where it was caught (or atleast when it was) due to the fact there was snow and ice all over the river yet none in the pic. Also heard it was mid/ upper 40# range which would break the NJ record but not the PA record

That's a great fish, but Pa's state record, the one standing since the 20s is truly massive!!! That fish doesn't come close

Something is def "fishy" about this. There was a big musky supposedly caught around me that was 51" 35lbs. I'm nowhere near the area where this was caught.. The picture I saw was on the ice with snow..

usually when the info is hush hush theres usually more to the story,a fish like that is worth bragging about as long as you tell the truth,being he isnt bragging makes one wonder

That's a giant for sure. It looks like to be in the area of a record at least. It's strange there is such little info on it.

Both arms fully extended and isn't struggling at all with the fish. Unless this guy is the hulk in disguise, I don't think it will get close to touching the record...

This is the Michigan state record that was caught this October. Confirmed by the state DNR AT 59" and 58lbs.




Is there ice yet?..

i know the guy holding the fish well,hes not even the one who caught it...the fish was caught open water and not ice fishing...and caught in the phillipsburg area....nothing fishy about this at all....and i dont think theres any secrets about it,except maybe exactly where it was caught..

Is it just me or does it seem that every time someone catches a fish that may be close to a record that the doubters come out of the woodwork? Is it jealousy or are people just that mean spirited that they will try to knock down every accomplishment in an attempt to make their own life seem better. Why cant people just congratulate someone when they catch a once in a life time fish? Analysing backrounds, judging fish by lengths of arms?

Nice fish, ABSOLUTELY!  Fish of a lifetime, not quite.

Lake St. Clair churns this size fish out on an every weekend basis.

Good fish to whoever caught it though, as long as they're happy, it's awesome! Don't need other people's approval.

my doubt wasn't so much as to where it was caught as the Delaware can produce some nice fish. It was to when it was caught since the river was choked with ice and slush from the West Branch up in NY all the way down to well below the tidal stretches in Philly when I had been told it was caught....too much to open water fish it effectively but no solid ice to ice fish it so given that I was skeptical  ;)

regardless of when it was taken its still a gorgeous fish  ;D

I just got this pic in an email. I have no idea who it is so maybe I'm wrong to post it.  If the guy in pic is on here and doesn't want it on i apologize and I'll take it right down. What a beautifull fish!! I think it's substatially bigger than the one above!!  Caption in the email reads "This was caught thru ice on the allegheny reservoir" the chain of the email is very long and I don't know the 1st several recipients.
