Anyone have an idea about from where this muskie might have come? I've heard of a few caught near Lyons, afew miles below the old Hoffman Dam, but that was years ago. Is/was there an official stocking prgram by the DNR? This is not like muskies on the Fox-escapees from Chain of Lakes or Shabonna.

That is one huge fish..
