Thanks for the hard work Mark!!! If not for folks like yourself down there, this fishery wouldn't be what it is. The amount of dedication you have put forth into the fishery in Juneau County, has been impressive, Thank you.

We also(Consolidated Musky CLub Inc.)stocked this past Tuesday, planting 500 9-13" Muskies into the river north of castle Rock/Petenwell/south of Stevens Point. The bill came to $5260.00 and we thank our members for all of the help in attaining the funds to continue this endeavor. This year marked the 100,000th Musky we've stocked locally, and what a fishery the club/s/ have resurrected here over the past 30 years, where Pollution once had Muskies completely eradicated for nearly 100 years. Since the Clean Water Act and subsequent construction of municipal and industrial waste water treatment facilities, species like smallies and Muskies again were able to flourish in the area starting in the early 1980's. Exciting stuff to think about present/future.

John, that was a real issue with ABU reels for us about 10 years ago. I lost a number of memorable Muskies on a couple trips in the early 2000's due to that very handle failure. They have since remedied that with new style handles, though a few still float around from time to time. I have a number of extra power handles that came with different ABU's over the past several years that have fixed paddles. If you are in need of a new handle drop me a line.

Here are three Paul charlie and I got the other day and into the night. We also hooked into 2 sturgeon on accident, but it added to the fun. Been on lots of big fish lately, which is great but seeing the smile on this kids face was just as good as catching any big fish.

Thanks for clarifying Mark. I was referring to Muskie Marks video in regards to efforts put forth through Muskie Matters Inc. I keep up on most of Mark's posts and when I seen Gowans's truck in your post, I assumed that this was the same stocking I watched. Either way I wanted to thank everyone who is involved with helping out our fishery's. I apologize if I wasnt more clear and if came across otherwise.

Muskies Matter Inc. has stocked about $15000 worth of muskies in Juneau Co. in the last 5 years. that is 1500 muskies at around $10.00 each.This year we stocked 200 fish on Castle rock and 100 below the Mauston dam. This is the 3rd year of putting fish below the Mauston dam. That means 300 muskies have been stocked below the Mauston Dam in the last three years by us. This is creating another musky fishing opportunity.

total in 5 years

Mauston Dam = 300

Castle Rock Lake = 1200

our fish are around 12 to 15 inches. Of the 7000 something mentioned, only a portion are from. the DNR stocks and so do other clubs.

I don't think the guy driving the truck would be lying, do you? I don't know what video your talking about but I would bet it's not about yesterdays stocking.

I just checked the stocking report for castle rock lake, looks like you could be right about the total. Thats awesome! I did see a video that Mark posted and watched it again. He is involved with a group called Muskie Matters and the video was showed 300 muskie between 12-15in being stocked. This funded by several events this year by muskie matters. Always great to see!

In 2013 the DNR stocked 7,957 Muskies @ 9.70" So 7500 looks correct.

I watched a video posted on Facebook and thought it was around 300 total muskies. 100 above the dam and 200 below. 7500 seems like an aweful lot of muskies and would cost a fortune. I didnt have time to watch the entire video and skipped through some of it before heading into work. The Muskie Matters group has been really stepping up to help out. Great Job to everyone involved. Its great to see how many people are willing to donate their time and efforts.

On the way home after yesterday's guide trip on "The Rock" I noticed a DNR tank truck unloading some new inhabitants to the system. So being an inquisitive person, I had to check it out. The driver said he was putting in round 7,500 extended length muskies (about 12 inches) in three different locations around the lake. This will soon be a musky destination for many anglers. If you catch any of the little ones, be gentle while releasing them.

Keep a tight line!!!

FISHING REPORT
9/16/14 9:35 PM CST
Conditions: Sunny
Glenn and Laura from Wheeling , IL have a get-a-way home on the Juneau County side of "The Rock" and booked a trip to learn a little about where to go and what to use to catch fish within the 16,000 acres of water that border Adams and Juneau Counties. I mentioned to Glenn when he booked the trip that if he had a hand-held GPS to bring it along so he can get back to the locations I take them to. I try to encourage everyone that books a trip to do the same, otherwise it would be difficult at best, to find the spots again. We launched at the ramp by Buckhorn Bridge and started the morning jigging wood near the ramp. We boated a couple "shorties" and had a few other taps, but nothing consistent. We moved to a mid-lake hump and brought a few more "shorties" over the side, but had a lot more fall off before we could get them over in the boat. Moved to a channel edge near Dellwood but nothing going there. Hit one other spot by Splash and boated some cat, a crappie, and a bunch of "shorties". They never pulled boards before so we finished the day with that and had some more "shorties" and Laura boated a really nice pike with great color. I will have a picture of Laura's pike posted tomorrow. I will have another post tomorrow that will interest musky fisherman, Mark S. will like this!

Keep a tight line!!!

This is a video of musky and pike fishing on the river North of the lake. You may have to reset your Youtube settings to HD for the best quality. The video shows lots of follows and catches. Even some action on the 8 and some boat-side strikes. All the pike are fat and the largest fish gets away due to my slow reaction to an equipment failure. I missed 3 muskies in total and the rest of the action is pike.
