"Jaws" found on the Chippewa Flowage!

On September 28th, 2008, nearly 10 years after a massive musky jawbone was discovered on Lake Chippewa Flowage another apparently larger set of jaws was found by duck hunter Chris Weber. Weber was walking along the shores of Hay Creek down from Dun Rovin‘ trying to flush some ducks when he discovered both the upper and lower jaws. Many people remember in 1998 when a monster jawbone was happened upon by a family exploring Lake Chippewa’s “Miami Beach” Island. Frank Pratt, Hayward Area Fisheries Manager for the Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources estimated that fish to probably be in the range of 58 to 70 inches based on the jaw dimensions. The new jawbone appears to be 1 1/2 to 2 inches larger. It will be sent down to fish biologists at UW Stevens Point to be analyzed. Watch this web site for more information to follow! Is the next world record Musky swimming in the waters of Lake Chippewa Flowage?
