Indiana muskie anglers can breathe easy.
The egg-taking project at Webster Lake last month was a huge success and the healthy adult fish population bodes well for the immediate future.
DNR biologist set nets March 29, and in 21 net lifts over the next few days they caught 352 muskies that produced 645,250 fertilized eggs.
That is really good news since the DNR was unable to take eggs in 2020 due to the pandemic.
“The overall catch per net lift was the best we’ve had in all the years we’ve been doing this,” said Hoosier Biologist Tyler Delauder. “The fish looked good with the majority of the adult fish in the 32 to 36-inch size range.

Today’s trendy swimbaits catch more than bass.
In fact, says walleye angler Steven Szymczak, it’s one of the most effective – yet overlooked - techniques for catching walleyes in Michiana.
“It’s definitely the most underutilized technique,” said Szymczak, who works at Clear H2o Tackle in Edwardsburg. “Everyone thinks of it as a bass lure, but it’s very natural and really deadly on walleyes.”
Swimbaiting is effective on the St. Joseph River and nearly all of Michiana’s lakes that contain walleye, he added.
