Michael Pierce Uncategorized 1 Comment

Our muskies are about 9″ long and by the end of the month they should be ready to go into the Fox Chain at around 10″ to 12″ fingerlings. Last week of September or the first week in October is the target we are shooting for. I will get a one week notice of delivery. This stocking of approximately 435 muskies will take place at Musky Tales launch on Channel Lake. Delivery will be between 10 am to 12 pm, Monday thru Friday. We will also be stocking approximately 210 muskies into Long Lake Long the same day. We are spending $7,400 on these fish at $11.50 per fish. More details to follow as the date gets closer.

    On Friday, September 14th the Illinois DNR stocked 1,000 muskie into Channel Lake at the Thirsty Turtle and then proceeded over to the Sandbar Restaurant on Lake Marie and put another 1,000 muskie into the water. On Friday October 4th the FRV put 200 12″ – 14″ muskies into Long Lake. From there we proceeded over to Musky Tales launch on Channel Lake and the FRV along with Musky Tales also put 450 fingerlings (12″ – 14″) into the lake. If you go to this link,
    You can see the video that was made of the stocking.
    On the following Tuesday, October 8th the FRV participated with Chicagoland Musky Hunters and Blackhawk Musky Club from Janesville, WI and helped them stock 1,000 Leech Lake strain muskies into Lake Geneva, WI.
    Chicagoland Musky Hunters spearheaded this event with donations from Blackhawk Musky Club and the FRV.
