Have you adopted a Musky?
You can adopt your own personal baby musky!
Then follow it’s progress through out the years. Last fall the WDNR stocked extended growth Muskies with PIT tags, passive integrated transponders, into the Chippewa Flowage. The WDNR surveys the Big Chip in the spring and fall, and every time a musky with at PIT tag is located it is scanned and it’s growth recorded. Many fishing guides also have scanners and contribute information on tagged muskies all season long. The Friends Into the Spooner Hatchery (F.I.S.H.) offered Adoption Certificates with PIT Tag numbers for a small donation to enable members of the community to track their adopted fish.
The WDNR publishes the information annually, and certificate holders are notified. My adoptee has eluded nets, shocks and hooks, but I found a “sibling” whose tag number was within 100 who had grown to 36.1.
