Fishing & Hunting Reports
Northern in the Eagle River area are in10 feet of water or less in and around weeds.  Use a Rapala minnow, bass style spinner bait or a small bucktail.  All day action, and the bite is excellent.

DNR Outdoor Report
Fishing activity has been relatively steady. The warm water temperatures have spurred on bass activity in the north and anglers have started to see some very good action. Walleye fishing has continued to be rather steady, with some decent catches of fish. Musky action has also improved with anglers reporting a lot of follows and some decent catches. Panfish success continues to be good, with some nice bluegill and perch being found on the deeper mud flats. Crappie have been found over the deeper weed beds or suspended near any mid-depth cover. The hex hatch is about over on central Wisconsin trout streams, but rains have kept streams up and trout fishing has been very good.

Q: How old do muskie get, and how long does it take to grow a 50 incher?

A: The oldest muskellunge I have aged was 22 years, and muskellunge in Canadian waters have been aged up to 30 years old.
In both cases, ages were assessed using the cleithrum, a calcified structure that requires lethal sampling and is collected from harvested fish anglers bring into taxidermy shops.
Traditional aging methods used scales because they were easy to sample and fish didn’t have to be sacrificed. Various studies have since found the scale aging method underestimates age, particularly for larger fish.
Growth and ultimate size can vary among bodies of water, depending on factors such as lake productivity, forage and genetics. Depending on the body of water, muskellunge in Minnesota could take 13 to 21 years to reach 50 inches.
