All the more reason to carry a BIG net whenever you're in MI musky/pike water. :-) Amazing too, that Lake Bellaire is only 3 or 4 miles from Torch Lake where the current Musky record was landed; 50-pound, 8-ounce on Sept. 27, 2009. Seems like a good reason to move to Traverse City!

Big smallmouths love to eat suckers and perch. We have caught fish over 4 pounds in the past using an 8 inch perch for bait. They usually only last one cast. Either a bass or a pike will eat the bait right away. Bellaire is an awesome lake!

Rock on . This is a beauty from heaven ! You deserve a lot for using an 8 lb. test line . Let your line and rod and reel company no what you caught and you will be rewarded by them . They love these stories. Better yet , I love them ! Best wishes !!

after the battle that took place with that ligth line, the musky would not have a very good chance of surviving if released and also, how much bigger do you think it will get before it dies of old age. I would release it if I got it on my musky tackle and landed it quickly but certainly would not condemn him for keeping it

Another Beautiful fish has die for the angler just to have a world record. How is anyone else going to enjoy catching that fish. Some people are so selfish only caring about there selves.
