Hoosier anglers urged to take the ‘Muskie Challenge’

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — As the spring fishing season approaches, the DNR encourages Hoosier anglers to give Indiana muskie fishing a try.“Indiana has some of the best muskie fishing in the Midwest,” said Jed Pearson, a DNR fisheries biologist who manages the state’s muskie program. “Lake Webster, the Barbee lakes and Lake Tippecanoe in northeast Indiana’s Kosciusko County are especially good.”Local fishing guides are available for hire for anglers who do not have a boat or who want expert help to get started. The lakes in Indiana’s muskie program cover 2,700 surface acres, and many have been stocked each year for more than 20 years. According to Pearson, it’s common for anglers to hook a muskie on every fishing trip. Long thought to be elusive, muskies bite on a variety of lures, many of which are typically used by bass anglers. Casting large plugs or trolling spoonbaits along submersed weed beds are the most productive methods. Muskies have sharp teeth that easily cut regular fishing line. So, attach your lures to a steel leader to keep the fish from breaking away. A large landing net is handy to lift the fish and safely handle it. The minimum size limit to keep a muskie in Indiana is 36 inches, but muskies taken at Lake Webster and the adjacent Backwater Area must be a minimum of 44 inches to keep. Even so, most muskie anglers release the fish they catch.For first-time muskie fishing, Pearson suggests heading to Webster. It has the highest density of muskies. Other muskie lakes in northeast Indiana include Everett in Allen County, Loon in Whitley County, and Skinner in Noble County.Another top muskie water is Bruce Lake, about 15 miles west of Rochester in Fulton County. Although smaller, at 245 acres, it too has a dense muskie population, with some fish measuring more than 50 inches long. “Not as many anglers fish for muskies at Bruce Lake,” Pearson said. “If more would try it, we think they’d be surprised.”Muskie fishing is also available in southern and central Indiana. Top waters include Brookville Lake northwest of Cincinnati and Bass Lake near Sullivan.Eagle Creek Reservoir in Indianapolis is also stocked with muskies, as are two pits southeast of Indianapolis and two near Evansville.Use the fish stocking database at wildlife.IN.gov/5457.htm to search for muskie waters near you.last_img read more

He said: “It has been highlighted at the moment anyway with the Black Lives Matter movement and everyone seems to be making such an effort to eradicate this type of behaviour. “It’s very sad that on the day of a game a player should wake up to this cowardly and despicable abuse. “I think it is right that Wilf has made people aware of it, I don’t think this is something that you should keep quiet about. “I think it is very good that our club, Aston Villa and the Premier League are doing everything they can to find out who this despicable individual is and one can only hope that they will get identified and they will get called to account and they will pay for these actions. “There is literally no excuse; there is no excuse at all. He wants to put off one of our best players from playing well, but to do it in the way he has chosen to do it, it is totally inexcusable.” A Premier League statement said: “This behaviour is completely unacceptable and the Premier League stands alongside @wilfriedzaha in opposing this, and discrimination in any form. There is #NoRoomForRacism, anywhere. “We will continue to support players, managers, coaches and their family members who receive serious discriminatory online abuse. “Through our dedicated reporting system we can take immediate action on cases like this.” Fellow footballers posted their support for Zaha with Match Of The Day host Gary Lineker tweeting: “This is abhorrent, and surely a criminal offence.” read also:Zaha urged to think carefully about Newcastle offer In May, an Irish teenager was questioned by police after Arsenal and Palace legend Ian Wright shared racist abuse he had also suffered over Instagram private messaging.
