For over 40 years, 700 members from the 13 Canadian chapters have been supplying the scientists with catch-and-release logs to aid in muskie research. In this episode, Blue Fish Radio host Lawrence Gunther talks to Muskies Canada president Chris Nielsen (above), about the organization’s latest fishing and research plans.
