Jim Hejlik of Fordville, N.D., holds the 52-inch muskie he caught Friday, July 27, on a lake north of Vermilion Bay, Ont. An admitted muskie fanatic, Hejlike, 80, said he'd been trying more than 30 years to break the 50-inch mark. A retired fisheries biologist friend said the sore on the side of the fish likely resulted from spawning but appeared to be healing well, Hejlik said. (Submitted photo)
