Wildlife officials in Iowa said the oldest known female muskie in the state was caught after 20 years.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources said the 46-inch female muskellunge was caught in a Fisheries Bureau net 20 years to the day after the last time it was encountered by officials.

The fish, which was 33.4 inches long when it was first netted, managed to evade nearly 2,000 capture attempts during those 20 years, officials said.
