What’s New with Winnebago System Walleye and Muskellunge Management

by Adam Nickel Winnebago System Gamefish Biologist for the DNR


For the past 27 years Mosquito Hill Nature Center has sponsored Musky Magic, a one day fishing expo for musky fishing enthusiasts. We want to build on the success of that event by including a new dimension to the popular program. Mosquito Hill is located in the heart of one of the best walleye fisheries in the country, so we’ve decided to offer a fishing expo that features the two most popular game fish species among Wisconsin anglers - musky and walleye.

The new Mosquito Hill Musky and Walleye Expo will take place on Super Bowl Saturday, February 6th from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM at the Hortonville Middle School (Note: location change from Musky Magic). The show will feature vendors and bait manufacturers for both species of game fish from around the state and region. Educational seminars will be offered by Keith Kavajecz and Pete Maina of The Next Bite TV.
