    New State Record Muskie Taken
    Location: North Dakota

    The Mandan angler reeled in a 46-pound 8-ounce muskie at New Johns Lake, besting both the pure muskie (46 pounds) and tiger muskie (40 pounds) state records, according to Scott Gangl, fisheries management section leader for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department. Genetic material is being sent to a lab to determine whether the fish is a tiger muskie, a cross between a northern pike and pure muskie.

    New Johns Lake, part of the Garrison Diversion canal lakes, is located in northern Burleigh County. Both types of muskies have been stocked into the canal lakes.

    Boschıs catch was impressive considering it was caught on a 10-pound test line. ıIt seemed like it took forever to land,ı Bosch said. ıIt was at least a half hour, probably even longer.ı

    Bosch caught the 54-inch muskie in 20 feet of water using a reef runner while trolling.
