Fish of 10,000 Casts: Scientists Reveal Why Muskies Are So Hard to Catch

After fishing for muskies in a controlled environment for 35 days straight, researchers at the University of Illinois came up with some interesting answers to an age-old question.

After gauging and recording each muskie’s personality, the researchers then took the 68 fish and stocked them in an experimental pond. The pond was emptied of other aquatic species beforehand, and they filled it with minnows so that all the muskies were content and equally well-fed.

Then came the fun part. Bieber and Suski fished the experimental pond with conventional gear for 35 days straight. They covered every inch of water using every combination of lure and presentation they could think of

At the end of the 35 days, they had caught seven fish!!!  :bonk:
