Indian Trail Resort's
2008 Musky Chart

Adventure at the End of The Trail

The 2008 Indian Trail Resort muskie award for the heaviest muskie caught by a guest is too close to call for any one angler, so we are declaring a five way tie between the following anglers who each caught muskies in the 28# class:

Terry Reints, 47”; Fred Hirsch, 46”; Mike Markowicz, 46”; Bill Rich, 46”; and Parker Coleman, 47”.

Brenda Dettloff registered the heaviest muskie of the 2008 season: a 30#+ fish which measured 47” in length.

11 year old Parker Coleman caught the heaviest muskie by a young person in 2008: a 28#+ fish which measured 47” in length.

In 2008, our guests caught 181 muskies (99% of which were released) that totaled 7046 inches in length and averaged 38.93” per fish.

Out of our resort in 2008, 79 muskies over 40 inches were caught, 52 of which were over 20#, and 18 of which were over 25#.
