We've got a lot of muskie hunters out there, so this post is for you! Our IDNR biologists were out on Heidecke Lake last week (April 6th - 9th) during the annual Spring Muskie Survey and they collected a whopping 79 Muskie! The biggest Muskie was 48.5 inches and 33 pounds (pictured below). This is the largest fish collected to date, and the second legal-sized fish collected in five years. Numerous 10 – 12 inch Black Crappie were also collected (some ~13 inches), along with nice Bluegill and legal-sized Walleye.
The VS-UNHINGED (Rear treble, a 10/0, attached to the bait with a heavy duty split ring) is a new heavy-duty double-bladed spinnerbait with two large treble hooks for great hook ups. The lure is built on a hand bent .062 wireframe with a 2.5-ounce hand poured head. Comes with two Colorado blades, a #8 and a #10. Weighs just over 3 ounces.
