Season 5 of Musky Hunter Kicks Off With TV's Largest Catch

In the season premiere of The Musky Hunter on WFN: World Fishing Network, on Friday, January 14 at 9:00 pm ET, host Jim Saric reeled in what is believed to be the largest musky ever caught on a television show - a 57-inch/48-lb behemoth.

Viewers will get to experience the once-in-a-lifetime superfish with Saric from hookset to release in incredible HD.

"When the fish hit I knew it was a giant as this gigantic head came out of the water," explained Saric. "It was one of those situations where I forgot that I was filming a television show and totally focused on the battle and landing this giant fish. There's a lot of intensity and excitement in this entire scene. Whether you are a musky angler or not, this is one must-see battle with a giant fish."

The Musky Hunter is the first television show ever dedicated solely to the hard-to-catch musky. It covers everything from the basics of catching muskies to strategies and secret tips for fishermen who have been chasing the fish for years. It airs every Friday night at 9:00 pm ET on WFN and WFN HD.
