Please Practice Catch and Release
We encourage all Anglers to practice catch and release. Muskies are a valuable resource and we are most fortunate here in New Jersey to have such a fine stocking program. The reason for C&R is to sustain our fishery and grow trophy Muskellunge. Did you know it takes a female Muskie on average 3 years to grow 30 inches ? Most trophies are 10 plus years old. Contrary to belief there’s not a endless supply of fish , so consider taking a quick picture and a quick release.
For those of you looking for a wall hanger ,did you know it’ll cost you anywhere from $500 to $700 to have your trophy mounted. Unfortunately traditional fish mounts don’t last too long before the heads start shrinking and you get cracks through out the mount .I would highly recommend a reproduction ,they’ll last you a lifetime and recycle a fish for another day .
If you are interested in learning how to catch muskies ,I would suggest signing up for muskie school.
