According to the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, less than one per cent of the world's fresh water harbours the mighty muskellunge and much of that water is in Ontario!
Feared by all other fish because of their status as the ecosystem's top predator, muskie usually conceal themselves among aquatic plants at the sides of channels, or lie suspended off shelving rocks and offshore shoals waiting to bring quick death to an unfortunate bait fish. Muskie will generally move into shallower water in the fall so adjust your fishing patterns in the cold weather.
With its large size and spectacular fighting abilities, muskie are one of our most sought after game fish in Sunset Country. Bring heavy casting tackle to counter the musky's great strength and fighting skills. Muskie can reach weights of over 50 pounds and exceed 50 inches in length in our lakes and rivers.
Large artificial baits including wooden plugs; spoons; combination spoon and feather; bucktails; surface lures; and a variety of other large tackle are required. Your investment in muskie tackle will be rewarded during your trip to Northwest Ontario.
