GARRISON, Minn. (AP) _ A monster muskie found in Minnesota can best be
described as the one that got away  again and again.

A couple fishing on Mille Lacs recently discovered a decaying 59 1/2 inch
muskie that likely is a state record. Department of Natural Resources
fisheries biologist Steve Mero says the fish could be 18 or 25 years old and is
one the largest muskies he's heard of lately, dead or alive.

Gary and Ann Gilbert found the giant Pike east of the Shaw-Bosh-Kung Bay landing near Garrison. They snapped photos of the enormous fish before returning it to the water.
