Tippets: Monster Muskie, Great Lakes Micro-Plastics, Tips On Being Guided

  • A muskie caught on the fly by a young angler in Hayward, Wisconsin stands to beat a world record. Read more via Pike Shack.
  • Micro-plastics found in facial and body scrubs as exfoliates are awash in the Great Lakes. It’s of significant concern, for “ If fish or birds eat the inert beads, the material can deprive them of nutrients from real food,” writes Christopher Johnston, “or get lodged in their stomachs or intestines.” Via Scientific American.
  • Before scheduling your next guided trip (or before going on your first) read Capt. Nick Sassic’s advice on what to do to prepare and get the most out of your time on the water.
