    The muskie stocking issue is all about opportunity. Many of the existing lakes are very crowded. Muskie Fishing is a growing sport while overall fishing license sales are going down. The DNR has a World Class Muskie Fishery that people have traveled from all over our country to fish for  muskies. The overall muskie fishing peaked a few years back and we are hoping to see the state return to prominence.
    The DNR developed their 20 year muskie plan back in 2008 and we are just now getting to the point of implementing it. The DNR did not ruin any walleye lakes or any bass lake or any crappie lake by the introduction of muskies into them. The plan is low density stocking. They are the last fish in the system to spawn. The fry have very poor success surviving to a 30" size.
    Now for my "Can of Worms"
    I think that we need to back off on legislation for the little issues of fish and game related regulation. The DNR is capable of making the right choices for managing our Lakes, Lands and Rivers. If they were funded better they could do even more good work.
    Legislating laws by lakeshore owners for the public waters of this great state is the wrong path and it sets a very bad precedent. What is next? The quiet lake does not want public boat launch updated or renovated? Legislating no boats on the lake between sunset and 9:00 AM? No more duck hunting on my lake?
    The DNR has the opportunity to change regulations if they make a mistake. Once laws are legislated in they are chiseled in stone.
    I want the DNR to have the funding to do their jobs. I fully support them - They may not always make the right decision but they have the opportunity to change it if their plans fail.
