I present to you Tilikum, the Orca that was responsible for many deaths at Sea World. He did not die in captivity, he was released in a river in MN...
That is nothing short of astounding! Obviously an all time state record contender and yet another hall of fame roughfishing feat for you this year. Wonderful to know that incredible organism is still lurking out there and probably slurping up 10 pound carp. Simply amazing, my highest salute to you!
Thank you! I was already pretty blown away by all the luck I've had this year, so this was the absolute last thing I was expecting to catch. I thought my luck was over for the season haha. Nope! here's the fish of a lifetime... I'm not sure if it will ever feel real to me, but Tilly is still out there, swam off strong like nothing happened. Feels good to know that maybe I, or another lucky angler will get to catch it again. It was tagged in the dorsal fin with a zip tie (not by us) so if I ever catch it again I'll know :)
Here's a Golden Fish Award for your excellent catch -
Awesome, thank you!! :)
Caught microfishing, size 22 hook, 4lb test, no doubt....
Hahaha and with a cane pole
A MN state record class fish... crazy impressive. Live or dead bait?
So crazy, I still can't believe it. Caught it on live bait :)
That is.. just look at.. wow. Unbelievable catch! Nothing but the highest of respect, honor, and a slight undertone of jealousy.
I love getting out and enjoying some time on all rivers of Minnesota whether its to soak a gnarly bullhead all night for flats, or throwing a barrage of jigs at Pink Salmon, I love all types of fishing and can't wait to learn more and catch em' all.
Haha thank you! Seriously unbelievable...
Jeez, that thing could probably eat my pb.
Yep, according to King Of The Cats length/girth chart :)
This fish gave me erectile dysfunction for over a month. One of the craziest things I've ever seen.
That's amazing fish. Wow!
OH YEAAAA!!!!! THE KING OF THE CATS CAN EAT HIS HAT! All Hail The Queen!!!
Ya just Can't catch um from the couch.
Move aside "king of the cats" there's a new sheriff in town and it's ME!! Hahaha jk jk
Wow! What a tanker of a fish! Huge congrats on a MN record book fish, that is soooo awesome!!
Thank you!! :)
I laugh when people tell me these fish are so ugly. It reveals their lack of respect and admiration for such a beautiful beast. You got one beautiful beast there. A HUGE CONGRATS to you!
Yeah I'll never understand those people haha. Thank you!! :)
If I caught that fish I would acquire terminal case of the Heebie Jeebies.
Hahaha I'm suprised I can blink again, I'm still in a state of shock that will probably never go away.
Ben I think you meant the Hebrew Jeebrews
this is so impressive. sincerest congrats
Thank you! :)
