We Boated 94 Muskies Fishing at Spring Lake

We finally were able to get the Musky video onto YouTube. The video starts out showing us pulling in the muskie nets at Spring Lake, then loading 'em up onto the Illinois Department of Natural Resources fish hauling truck, then finishes up with a mini tour of the Jake Wolf State Fish Hatchery.

Altogether we boated and transferred 94 big muskies over to the hatchery. There were 17 big females that averaged 19 lbs each and the rest were males that averaged about 12 lbs each.

We will start our trapnetting and electrofishing surveys April 12th. We have electrofishing jobs lined up all across the state of Illinois from Chicago all the way down towards St. Louis. I can't wait to get back out on the water for the season! We have quite a few big dock projects to complete and even am custom building a couple of our new HB Pond Toon Boats for some clients while we are waiting for the water to warm up a bit!
