Hunting and fishing go hand in hand for many people, but for those who choose to angle for musky, a large freshwater predatory fish in the rivers and reservoirs of the Midwest, fishing is hunting.

″(Catching a musky) is more like hunting than fishing,” said Bob Sisson, president of the Central Ohio Chapter of Muskies Inc.

Those who choose to hunt muskies – short for “muskellunge” – were lured to the Makoy Center in Hilliard for the annual Ohio Musky Show from Jan. 11 to 13.

The show has been a fixture at Hilliard’s Makoy Center for eight years, Sisson said.

The Ohio Musky Show is a benefit for those who have never dropped a line in the water, according to Libby Gierach, president and CEO of the Hilliard Area Chamber of Commerce.
