Angler's Muskie from Lake Bellaire is World Record

Posted:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says a muskellunge caught in Antrim County has been listed as a world-record fish.
    
Joseph Seeberger of Portage landed the fish Oct. 13 on Lake Bellaire, about 25 miles northeast of Traverse City. The muskie weighed 58 pounds, was 58 or 59 inches long and had a girth of 29 inches.
    
The DNR earlier said that the fish had the state record based on weight.
    
This week, the DNR said has been listed as a world record by the International Committee of the Modern Day Muskellunge World Record Program. The committee is a group of muskellunge scientists, industry leaders, anglers and others who track records.
