Gary Gilbert, 55, of Becker, Minn., hoists a 59 1/2-inch muskie he found floating dead on Lake Mille Lacs June 17, 2017. Had the fish been caught alive, it likely would have set the state record for catch-and-release muskies, which are measured by length. The current record is 56 7/8 inches, set in 2016 on Pelican Lake in Otter Tail County. (Courtesy of Gary Gilbert)
