Most anglers are unaware of the growing Muskie
population on the Wolf River system. For the last 15 years or so
anglers have been talking about catching some nice size fish. After some
study on the population the DNR reacted by putting a ONE fish bag limit
with a 50 inch minimum length on the system a number of years ago
to...and I quote "protect the existing population of spawning fish OVER
50 inches and those about to reach it". Since that time I have had a friend
catch a 53 1/2 inch Muskie in the fall of 2012 and have seen a couple of
fish brought in over 50 inches that were un-releaseable. I have also
seen pictures of numerous released fish over 50 inches including a recent photo of a 54 inch Muskie caught this summer. I have also talked with a trusted friend who tangled with a
Muskie that he says may well have been approaching 60 inches, which was also
released. Knowing this person and having seen monster fish eat numerous ducks, I believe him. So, come on out and help us promote this areas non prime time
Muskie fishery. It's an area known mostly for it's walleye and white
bass runs but the summer and fall fishing can be great for pike and
Muskie. There is a prize potential for ANY Muskie caught and released*. Event will run from June 1st 2018 until November 1s
