Ontario’s Ministry of Natural Resources says, “Ontario’s muskie fishing is so phenomenal, that it is not a question of whether Ontario will produce the next world record, but exactly when and where in the province it will happen. World-class fish are caught every year from several water bodies. In other areas not known for producing record-breaking fish, seasoned muskie anglers just laugh when they hear their favorite gamefish referred to “as the fish of a thousand casts”. Careful management utilizing high minimum size limits, very low possession limits and a strong catch and release ethic among anglers, will help Ontario remain as the world’s premier muskie destination”.

The Ontario Record 65 lbs. (29.48 kg)
