The 15th Annual Muskie School was a huge success with just over 200 students attending for the sixth straight year!

We would like to thank the 25 instructors for their time and commitment in making this event one of the best of its kind in the country. Our students are demanding that we continue the school each and every year and they return time and again.

Thanks to all,

CCMI Muskie School Committee.

The Wisconsin Musky Expo is a great show! Nice lineup of vendors and speakers.

We were able to signup 3 people for the Muskie School slated for next Saturday March 12 while we were at the Expo. (Capital City Muskies Inc. Booth) Hopefully a few more today.

Monday March 7 and Tuesday March 8 will be the last days to actually send in registration for classes and still get your return confirmation in the mail. I will hold a confirmation letter for you at the Registration table if we get late entries.

We encourage Walkin Registration the day of the School. Be there by 7:30am-7:45am to sign in and be ready for the Opening Plenary Sessions.

Monster Lures owner Bill Buechner will give every kid 17 and under a Rabid Squirrel Bucktail if they are present and registered at the Muskie School! This is a very generous donation and we appreciate it. Grab bags for each are also provided.

Those students 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult. We usually have 20-25 kids out of the 200+ students who attend. They have a great time.

Several have asked if there are still openings in the 3 Reel Repair class. Yes, we have 3-4 openings in all 3 Reel Repair classes!

All other classes also have plenty of openings for registration. Although the Bemidji, Minn. area class was recently canceled as the instructor had an unexpected calendar conflict.

Only 12 days away to signup and become eligible for the $200 gift card drawing for early bird registration!

Also all those who sign up on or before March 7 will save $10. We still welcome walking registration the morning of the Muskie School.

For Registration forms go to under Upcoming events.

This event is and always will be open to the public!
