From 1955 to 1969, all muskellunge stocked in Bone Lake, Lac Court Oreilles and Big Spider Lake were finclipped. The presence of this large number of known-age fish provided the opportunity to gather empirical growth data and to compare two widely used methods of determining age and growth. From 1956 through 1968, scale samples and fin sections were taken from 1,734 known-age fish and from 1,468 muskellunge considered to be partially known-age fish.
