Video: 30-Pound November Muskie in Northern Wisconsin

Muskie fishing in mid-November in northern Wisconsin can be summed up in one word — brutal. But sometimes the reward is worth the pain.

The popular YouTube channel Todays Angler is hosted by guides Lee Tauchen and Robbie Jarnigo, and in the video below, Robbie is muskie fishing with his buddy/guide Michael Hanson in northern Wisconsin. Robbie and Michael are joined in the boat by Heidi and Hannah.

Before Robbie has time to film an intro for their afternoon on the water, a muskie strikes one of the group’s large sucker minnows, and soon Michael is coaching Hannah through the hook set and eventual fight.

As you’ll see, the fish is massive. Congrats to all the anglers because it really is a team effort to combat the cold, keep the lines untangled, handle the net and the fish, etc.

Note: This mega muskie was caught on day No. 7 of a 10-day November muskie challenge. Check out Todays Angler for other videos from their challenge. This isn’t the only big cold-water muskie that the group slides into the net.
