I'm turning 40 tomorrow.  I figure, I'm not going to get better at anything athletically, but I still want to have some goals in life.  I like fishing, but I don't get out there as much as I'd like.  To motivate myself and to keep it interesting, I decided to set a goal of catching 50 different species of fish here in my home state of Wisconsin.  And to add to the difficulty, I have to catch each as I'm filming it.  I'm going to post each video to this thread, and I'm also going to need help as I go.  Any tips on how to catch different species of fish would be greatly appreciated.  Here's the first fish I caught on video, the Bigmouth Buffalo by the Hustisford Dam.

Thinking of fishing Pewaukee Lake for muskies with my little guy this week.  Any tips?

Love how you involve the kids in your videos. That's great! Too many times I see guys fishing a lot, while their kids stay at home. Good to enjoy the hobby together! They will always remember the times!

When it comes to Musky, I've never actually caught one the few times I specifically went Musky fishing on purpose.  But I've caught a bunch by accident fishing for other species.  My recommendation- go bass fishing on a body of water that has Musky and use a white skirted spinnerbait. That's the way I usually get them

Still trying.  I did make an amendment to my species list because of this fishing trip.

Thanks ifishwi for posting the article.  Also, thanks everyone for the continued tips and advice.  Someone here told me about the fish finder website for Wisconsinites.  I made a video about it and then caught a nice Brook Trout.  Check out this link - https://cida.usgs.gov/wdnr_fishmap/map/ - and also check out the video if you need an explanation on how the website works.
