Catch Fish Of A Lifetime During Northern Zone Muskellunge

Season May 29-Dec.31

BARRON, Wisconsin  ~~~~~~~  May 19, 2021  (LSN)  The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) today announced that the 2021 northern zone muskellunge (musky) season will kick off May 29, 2021 and run through Dec. 31.

Anglers can catch musky on open waters within the northern muskellunge management zone. All regulations and license requirements apply.

"Warmer weather has opened the door to more fishing opportunities in the northern muskellunge zone," said Justine Hasz, DNR Bureau of Fisheries Management Director. "Muskellunge give patient anglers a chance to catch the fish of a lifetime. Good luck on the water and stay safe."

Proclaimed the official state fish in 1955, the muskellunge (Esox masquinongy) is one of Wisconsin's most unique trophies.

More musky world records have been landed in Wisconsin than anywhere else. The current state and world record is a tremendous 69-pound, 11-ounce musky taken from the Chippewa Flowage.

Anglers should consult the 2021-2022 Hook and Line Fishing Regulations for daily bag and size limits.

Fishing licenses can be purchased online through the GoWild system or from a license vendor. More information on licenses can be found on the DNR’s fishing license webpage.
