Ohio Muskellunge Size and Quantity Limit

202 Signatures Goal: 250

Muskellunge or muskie are large, relatively rare freshwater fish of North America. They are the largest member of the pike family. Anglers seek mature muskies as coveted trophies or simply for a good fight. They are known by anglers for long, powerful runs, and stunning aerial acrobatics. At best a challenging fish to catch, the muskie has been called "the fish of 10,000 casts". Their low resilience and slow rate of reproduction have caused many governments to instate breeding programmes and harvest limits in an effort to maintain populations and provide anglers with a better chance at a trophy fish. The muskellunge is native to Ohio and is found in both major drainage basins of the state. Historically, it was abundant in the bays and tributaries of Lake Erie and in many streams in the Ohio River drainage. Currently, it is also found in several impoundments around the state but Ohio does not have a regulatory size limit and allows 2 fish to be kept daily. Prevent over harvest and help Ohio's muskies grow to be the mature trophy fish Ohio's musky anglers desire. Support a limit of 1 fish daily measuring 40 inches or more.
