Trapping Muskies Today

Just getting ready to head out to Spring Lake and pull in a bunch of trapnets with Wayne Herndon and Rob Hilsabeck of the Illinois DNR. 

We will then transport the Muskies to Jake Wolf Fish Hatchery to strip out the eggs and create a whole bunch of baby muskies for the state of illinois' muskie stocking program! 

Its gonna be alot of fun!


  1. Please post some pictures of the trapping if you can. Id be fascinated to see how that works. Also the egg extraction.

  2. We took tons of pics and even filmed the whole process! I will post the pics and video as soon as I can.

  3. Cool! I hope you got some of the hatchery, too. There isnt much on the facility on line.

    Thanks for keeping such a cool blog!
