Fish of the Week: Muskie of a lifetime

Robbie Binder caught the muskie of a lifetime his first time muskie fishing.

As a birthday present from his dad, the Glenview 22-year-old fished with Christopher Taurisano of T-Bone Guide Service earlier this month on the Chain O’Lakes.

“Well, Robbie put three fish in the boat including this 49 3/4-inch musky!!!!!, a true Illinois beast!!” Taurisano exclaimed on Facebook.

Taurisano said it was caught on a double 8 Esox Assault bucktail.

We have a contender for Fish of the Year.
