Ontario Muskie Fishing

In Ontario the Muskie is one of the most sought-after gamefish for its size and "tackle busting" fighting prowess. The geographic range of the muskie in Ontario is far more restricted than that of the northern pike and is concentrated in the fresh waters surrounding the Great Lakes, Georgian Bay, and areas of the Canadian Shield including Lake of the Woods. Because of their rarity and the stress Muskie undergo when captured, they are vulnerable to fishing pressure. While the popularity of muskie fishing is increasing in Ontario so is the catch and release ethic that may ultimately save this majestic species.

This formidable fish has razor-sharp teeth which can (and have) ripped an unwary angler's hand to shreds in a flash. A set of spring wire jaw separators is recommended.

The Ontario record muskie weighed 65 pounds, measured 58 inches in length and 30.5 inches in girth. Toronto's Ken O'Brien caught the brute on October 16, 1988, in Georgian Bay's Blackstone Harbour, Moon River Basin.

Ontario MUSKIE fishing adventures are available through these Outfitters
