With the State of New York allowing anglers to begin legally fishing for muskies before the traditional opener (the third Saturday in June), anglers from across the northeast have been traveling to our part of the world to chase the elusive muskellunge, and local fisheries have been seeing an uptick in angler activity.
While catch-and-release rules are in order, which the 99.9 percent of muskie anglers do anyways, the importance of the “early/special seasons” are important to local businesses.
Early season muskie chasing can be exciting and very rewarding. Clients from across the country travel hundreds of miles to just spend a few hours on local lakes to catch the fish of 10,000 casts. And the early season, in my humble opinion, is one of the best times to boat a trophy muskie.
