From the DNR website dated 6/5/00.

Two 30-inch muskie were sampled in gill nets. This species, native to Bad Axe Lake, declined in number when other gamefish species such as northern pike were introduced in the early 1900's. A stocking program from 1950-1969 attempted to restore the muskie fishery, but was discontinued due to lack of a public access. It is likely a few breeding muskie are present, but muskie fry are highly vulnerable to predation and competition from other species. Bad Axe is still a designated muskie lake.
