I received an email today from Scott Hale ODNR. He wanted to pass along his thanks to everyone for reporting their muskie catches to the MAL. I also wish to thank everyone for reporting their catches. This is one way to help ensure the future of our muskie program. Also in his email he attached a pdf entitled "Do Catch-and-Release Guidelines from State and Provincial Fisheries Agencies in North America Conform to Scientifically Based Best Practices?" I know it may not interest everyone but I found it interesting. It will be posted on our SOMA Research page in the next few days. It basically compares the C&R guidelines (or lack thereof) for all 50 states and some Canadian provinces. It also discusses several ways to improve C&R success for many species of fish.
