“It smelled up my boat for two weeks.”

As Gary Gilbert began lifting the thing out of the water, he couldn’t believe its size.

“It just kept coming and coming,” said Gilbert.

Gilbert was about to be hoisting a 59 1/2-inch muskie — a rare specimen that likely would have set a state record had it been caught alive and was among the oldest and biggest the fish are capable of getting.
