DNR Enforcement
CO Weekly Report

CO Demosthenes Regas (Blackduck) reports monitoring angler and boating activity on area special regulation lakes throughout the week. Time was sent working with DNR Wildlife staff on numerous reports of injured bald eagles. CO Regas saw a vehicle pulling a boat and as it made a turn a large amount of water spewed from the live well over-flow. When the vehicle stopped Regas addressed the water coming from the boat with the driver of the vehicle. It turned out the live well was full of lake water and contained his walleye catch of the day. The driver had just come from an area lake and wanted to keep his walleye alive until returning home. The AIS violation and transport of live fish were addressed.

DNR Q & A
Q: How old do muskie get, and how long does it take to grow a 50 incher?

A: The oldest muskellunge I have aged was 22 years, and muskellunge in Canadian waters have been aged up to 30 years old.
In both cases, ages were assessed using the cleithrum, a calcified structure that requires lethal sampling and is collected from harvested fish anglers bring into taxidermy shops.
Traditional aging methods used scales because they were easy to sample and fish didn’t have to be sacrificed. Various studies have since found the scale aging method underestimates age, particularly for larger fish.
Growth and ultimate size can vary among bodies of water, depending on factors such as lake productivity, forage and genetics. Depending on the body of water, muskellunge in Minnesota could take 13 to 21 years to reach 50 inches.
Jerry Younk, DNR fisheries research biologist
