IN THE FIELD: Brad Vollrath 51-inch muskie

Published 10/07/2012, Grand Forks Herald

Brad Vollrath, Grand Forks, released this 51-inch muskie during a September fishing excursion on the Ontario side of Lake of the Woods. The big fish had a 24-inch girth, which puts it at more than 36 pounds based on length-girth estimates. Vollrath, who could be described as a “hardcore” muskie fisherman, released three muskies 50 inches or longer in September. The 50-inch mark widely is considered the trophy standard among muskie aficionados.
