I'm not one to brag, but here's one I caught last year on my 4w glass. It was a quick fight, after about 16 hours he slowly came in and I was able to net it.
That's me on the overhead guard of the forklift. I'm wearing the blue cap.

Mojo! Your fish makes mine seem tiny !

Caught this on April 7, 2009, while fishing a 5wt for trout:

It's the biggest fish I've caught on a fly rod, and made all the 16" LMB I caught later this year seem small....

Thanks Joni. It is a pike. I had a little musky on the other day in the same spot though. It did a run right at me followed by an airborne cartwheel and spitting the fly. Still fun.
I have been having a blast with the big Walleyes. I get at least one big one every evening. As the fall progresses it will just get better. The Emerald Shiners run up the river in the fall and the big Walleyes follow them. I've been using a blue/white clouser that does a fair emerald shiner imitation. Since the big Pike moved in with them I have been albright knotting a piece of 30 lb. mono the the end of the leader. It keeps the pike from chopping me off most of the time but doesn't spook the Walleye. They don't like steel leader much, ...most of the time anyway.
The coolist part is that almost everyone up here thinks this is pretty much impossible. What a hoot.
