The hatchings this season have been large and already there are said to be many full-grown birds, which assures the sportsmen of that state and those from other states who can spare the time to go there some fine sport the coming autumn. AValter Houle, an employe of the Thomas resort on Lac Vieux Desert in Vilas County, Wis., claims the distinction of capturing the largest muskellunge taken from Wisconsin waters in twenty years.
