A record number of trophy muskies were caught by Wisconsin anglers last year.

Fishermen reported catching and releasing 105 muskies 48 inches or longer in 2009, which is most since Wisconsin began keeping records 40 years ago.

The latest data shows Wisconsin anglers released 96 percent of the muskies they catch.
