About Muskies, Inc.

Our Purpose

Our Organization

Muskies, Inc is an Active, Service-Oriented 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization for men, women and children.

Founded in 1966 by Gil Hamm, the original group of thirteen avid Muskie Fishermen concentrated on 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.

Muskies, Inc. has expanded to over 6,000 Members and 50 independent Local Chapters throughout the country. We have become a national voice of the protection of the Muskie species. Muskies, Inc. is widely recognized as the first organized group of anglers to espouse the “Catch And Release” practice now embraced by many conservation-minded groups throughout North America. Today Muskies, Inc. focuses on three critical areas: Youth, Fisheries, And Research.
