Welcome to Twin Cities Chapter of Muskies, Inc.

The Twin Cities chapter is the first-ever chapter of Muskies, Inc., a non-profit organization with the single focus of improving the sport of muskie fishing everywhere the fish are found.

Our meetings are open to everyone and we invite you to come join us. This is a great way to meet, learn and share experiences with other like minded people who are passionate about fishing for muskie. It’s a fun time and great opportunity to meet people that have a similar interest.

During our meetings we discuss things related to Muskies, Inc, our chapter and other topics. At most meetings we invite a guest speaker – generally someone well-known in the muskie world. Drawings for prizes from lures to rod/reel combos conclude each meeting. Besides muskie fishing, the Twin Cities Chapter is involved in a number of other activities. We hold a “Fishing Opener” complete with trout pond at the Minneapolis Veteran’s Home, we take members of the Capable Partners organization out for a day of muskie fishing, we host a fishing day for children and families of our military, we have a fundraising banquet in the spring, we host 2 muskie tournaments in the fall, and we contribute to the local muskie resource. Each of these activites are great experience for everyone involved and is another way we give something back to our community.

Muskies, Inc. is widely recognized as the first organized group of sports anglers to espouse the "Catch and Release" practice now embraced by many conservation-minded groups throughout North America. One of the goals of Muskies, Inc. is giving back to our fisheries. As muskie fishing grows so does the pressure on lakes. Our chapter works to raise funds and stock metro-area muskie waters. Through fund raisers our chapter is able to raise our own muskies and purchase fish to be stocked.  It's one way we can give back to a sport we all enjoy.

Muskies Inc. was founded in 1966 by Gil Hamm with the goal of continual improvement of the muskie resource through rearing and stocking efforts and sound conservation practices. Today, departments of natural resources have realized the value of stocking muskies.  There are thirty-seven of the lower forty-eight states with active muskie stocking programs. We have become a national voice of the protection of the muskie species. Muskies, Inc. has expanded to over 7,500 members and nearly 50 independent local chapters throughout the country. The Twin Cities chapter is one of the largest with close to 500 members.
