    I have always wondered if they roamed a larger area than most thought. However without data and proof one never really knows. I bases my info and beliefs on walleye studies which showed large area where they roam...why not muskie and other species too.

    Actually knew or again had a belief that walleye were roaming back in the 80's. When in the prespawn and spawning times they were thick in certain areas...then they would move east to the east end of Erie leaving not only Erie west end but also comming out the D and down from Huron. Tagging was the method then.

    I hope we as man can only learn and learn how to help them. However we seem to mess certain things up intentionally or not.

    Thank you for the post OP ! :)
