Top-flight muskie guides and anglers will share their knowledge on how to catch the highly prized game fish at the 2019 Musky Seminar March 22-23 and April 6 at Nicolet College in Rhine­lander.

Participants will have the opportunity to take part in 10 sessions designed for those new to the sport as well as experienced muskie hunt­ers looking to put more fish in the boat.

“All of the class sessions are focused on giving people the knowledge and skills they need so they can hit the water running when muskie season opens in May,” said Steve Heiting, seminar presenter and managing editor of Musky Hunter magazine for the past 24 years.

“If there’s a secret to catching muskies, and catching them regularly, it’s putting together a whole bunch of little things and doing them correctly,” said Heiting.

The seminar will be held in the Lakeside Center on the Nicolet campus, located 1 mile south of Rhinelander off Highway G.

Participants are welcome to attend one day or all three.
