InFocus also meets a group of local anglers known as the Shawnee Muskie Hunters, a local chapter of Muskie's Inc., who are as passionate about catching muskies as they are about the protection and proper management of the rare fish. Twice each year, they host a unique fundraiser twice called "Guide for a Day," during which local guides take fisherman from around the country on a day-long fishing trip for muskie. Various luring methods, such as the Figure Eight, are used to catch the biggest muskies, although the legal limit is 48 inches. Funds raised help offset the costs associated with surveying and protecting the fish and also help to support the local economy.
