Muskie Expo Chicago

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.

Heidecke Lake State Fish and Wildlife Area is located in Grundy County approximately 1 mile south and 8 miles east of Morris, between Illinois Route 47 and Interstate Route 55 on Lorenzo/Pine Bluff Road. ifishillinois.org/profiles/waterbody.php?waternum=00059
