Unfortunately that happens on a regular basis on LSC & the DR. On a regular basis I will either be on the water on the DR or LSC or leaving or coming into the dock & people will ask me what I’m fishing for & when I tell them “musky” they respond by saying; “I hope you kill everyone that you catch.”

It pains me to see this, and knowing it could take place anywhere, and does, is just sickening. Especially knowing how hard clubs, natural resource departments, And most musky fisherman practicing C&R work at building and preserving this resource for the future of keeping something to enjoy. Ive approached people on the catch and release and handling issue in the past all with the same sort of narrow minded reply or argument of mind your own business.( Even during the biggest C&R tournament in the state) Honestly, it is my business, its your business too! Ive been a part of a club for a long time, and have helped raise money, donated time, and actually helped plant and stock fish in various local waters. As many on this site have contributed to, in some form, in/on your fisheries/lakes. Kudos to all of you who do care, And do work at keeping their fisheries alive, and keep spreading awareness and importance of what we as whole want to achieve. And a big up to the guys who kept cool and got video and pictures of, not necessarily the most ignorant dude out there, but possibly, one of there leaders. :P With that much footage, He should definitely be made an example of. Thank You!

Good to hear!
Hope they are tough on crimes like that.
Lifetime hunting/fishing ban at minimum I say.

hopefully the c.o has visited. I have not heard yet. as charges are not public knowledge until its thru courts on Ontario. I know the dingbat. no job does not care poaches rabbits/fish. theres a few here but there getting weeded out.. truly makes it bad for sportsmen and women that care. hopefully a judge that understands the outdoors sits on the bench that day.. I have personally tracked his snare line and cut every wire. some folks should never spawn guess his cousins screwed up

2nd person in less than a week, who was seen doing this...

There was another non-muskie fishing person (IDIOT), observed doing the same things in the Dumping Grounds. His boat had MC numbers, instead of 55E/42E numbers. Stupid knows no border lines.

Unfortunate, it happens a lot more, than people think. Way too many get it during the walleye run in the spring.

Got a call from a OMNR C.O. this morning...Made my day, they know who he is, they have contacted the guys that witnessed/video'd it, I'd say they have a pretty good case against this guy!

I am glad these guys took action. I have heard the Canadian game and fish authorities do not mess around. Hopefully they give this guy what he deserves.

muskie-don58 - 9/7/2014 6:52 AM

We need to arm ourselves with information that proves a fishery with a healthy muskie population is a healthier fishery of all species including the "favorites". Is this not true ?


When I hear walleye guys share their dislike for the "walleye eating musky" I point out that the a lot of the best walleye fisheries in Minnesota contain muskies: LOTW, Leech, Winnie, St Louis River, Vermillion, Cass, Mille Lacs, Detroit Lakes...the list goes on. I am guessing you could compile a similar list for other states and Canada.

Most of these lakes are also excellent for big pannies, bass and/or pike.

There are scientific studies that show data that Muskie do not have a major effect on other fish populations but pointing out this simple fact seems to be more productive in getting them to second guess their viewpoint than referencing a study.

those are the guys with their freezers PACKED with walleye and look for reasons other than themselves to blame for less than ideal fishing.

I Really like the disgruntled looking still photo of that guy at the end

I hear the musky eat panfish/perch/walleye population to extinction argument all the time, strangely enough from anglers who cant find fish/ fished their water to death for 40 years and need something else to blame.

"We used to go out on Friday and catch 50 walleyes for our Friday night fish fry. Now we're lucky to get 20. The muskies are eating them all!"

I told a guy this once:

"They usually eat suckers, redhorse, bullheads, and all the other fish that eat walleye eggs. Even if they do eat the occasional walleye, a musky only eats a fish every couple days. You guys wipe out more walleyes in a weekend than a musky will eat in it's entire life."

But then you can't tell people like this anything. They heard once from cletus in the bar. That's all it takes.

the argument of fish eating other fish. if one was to look at biological factors and invasive species then they could afford a formed opinion. . st clairs sight feeders enjoyed a population increase. at the zebra mussel invasion most of us moved our charteboats to l.erie. truthfully we never cracked the new code. theres lots of walleyes/perct etc in st clair. re-learn how to fish and theres lots for a meal..a statement in the area paper .ive known eddy 40 years. he had a bad day. the eddy I saw in the video clubbing musky is a poacher. . either her standards are very low or she don't know this eddy. the guy that sells walleyes. snares rabbits illegally.. themnr in Ontario have first prioritized this clubbing because sportsmen care on there lakes/outdoors.

Here is the problem...I am looking at what he did. Killed (kept) an undersized musky. He then let it spoil. Unless they have him for something else, I don't think that amounts to anything more than a fine of some sort. He'll get off easy is my prediction...sad to say.

I watched about 10 seconds of it and I thought: "Aw, SHUT UP, you asshat!!"

Aw... now he's "sorry"...

He's "sorry" because he got caught and now he's got a target on his backside.

He's "sorry" because his lawyer told him he had better be.

He's "sorry" because he was too stupid to predict the crapstorm he just brought on himself.

If he had an ounce of sorry in him, he'd have thrown the fish back BEFORE he clubbed it.

Oh well. He may as well walk around with a shirt that says "I'm a D-bag!" at this point.

There's no excuse he can make now that's going to fix anything.
