Indian Trail Resort's
2009 Musky Chart

Adventure at the End of The Trail

In 2009, our guests caught 201 muskies (100% of which were released) that totaled 7964  inches in length and averaged 39.62” per fish.

Out of our resort in 2009, 103 muskies over 40 inches were caught, 68 of which were over 20#, and 29 of which were over 25#.  A record 11 muskies over 30# were caught out of our resort in 2009, making this was our best trophy musky year in more than 55 years!

The 2009 Indian Trail Resort muskie award for the heaviest muskie caught by a guest is a difficult call, so we are declaring a two way tie between Pete Rich, who had the longest measured musky at 52”, and Al Denninger, with his 51” beauty, for both catching & releasing muskies that likely went in the 36# to 38# class.

Another great catch that deserves special attention is the largest recorded hybrid musky ever caught in the Chippewa Flowage, caught & released by Jim Rafac, a mid 30# hybrid musky that, when measured with a length of rope, probably went in the 52” to 53” class.

Brenda Dettloff caught the heaviest muskie by a woman in 2009: a 26#+ fish which measured 45” in length.

Cathy Szczepanski & Linda Wagner tied for the heaviest muskie by a woman guest in 2009: with 23# class fish that measured 44” in length.

10 year old Daniel Wagner caught the heaviest muskie by a kid in 2009: a 14# class fish which measured 38” in length.
