OAK RIDGE TEEN CATCHES 52.5-INCH MUSKY

An Oak Ridge teenager caught a 52.5-inch Muskellunge Wednesday at Clark Center Park. Cory Allen said he was there filming an instructional video for Eastfield Baits with Travel Heiberg when he caught the fish. The fish are typically 28 to 48 inches long and weigh 15 to 36 pounds, though some have reached up to 6 feet long and almost 70 pounds. Allen says the area around Melton Hill Lake is a great spot to catch Musky. He says he catches at least eight to 10 of them each year.
