I support the spearing ban on LSC and would like to see more strict harvest regulations for muskellunge on all other Michigan waters
Michigan should close spearing for Muskellunge on all lakes. Spearing is detrimental to the population. Its high exploitation rates are subduing its potential to havesustainable waters. I have fished and/or plan to fish Michigan waters, and would invest more fishing time in Michigan if the regulations were changed to allow for increased opportunities. Spearing should also continue to be banned on Lake St Clair, as LSC has shown that world renown Muskie destinations can be achieved if the regulations do not permit winter harvest.
