For the Tomahawk Leader

RHINELANDER – The many tactics to catch one of the most prized gamefish in northern Wisconsin will be the focus when the Outdoor Adventure program at Nicolet College in Rhinelander holds its Musky Seminar on Saturday, March 26 and Saturday, April 2.

Participants can attend one or both days. Ten different classes are planned for the two-day event, with seminars offered March 26 geared for people new to musky fishing and with April 2 geared toward helping more experienced musky hunters put more fish in their boat.

Each session is one hour and topics will include Basics Of Musky Fishing, Landing & Release Techniques, The Right Stuff: Gear Up Correctly, Examining Area Waters, Make Muskies Bite, Understand Feeding Windows, Moving Waters: Fishing In Current, Successful Tactics For Open Water, and Livebait Tactics.

“If there’s a secret to catching muskies regularly, it’s putting together a whole bunch of little things and doing them correctly,” said recent Fishing Hall of Fame inductee Steve Heiting, who will be the lead presenter at the seminar.

Joining Heiting in presenting seminars are longtime Northwoods guides Scott Biscobing, Ken Jackson and Rob Manthei.

“All of the class sessions are focused on giving people the knowledge and skills they need so they can hit the water running when musky season opens in May,” Heiting said.

Cost is $60.00 for one day and $100.00 for both days. Lunch, a welcome bag and the chance at door prizes are included in the registration fee.

To register, visit or call 715-365-4544 or 1-800-544-3039, ext. 4544.
