Marty the Musky

A large musky statue honors the town's claim to be "Musky Capital of the World."

[Gareth Hewitt, 09/15/2021]

The 18-foot-long Musky was built in 2021. Over 600 entries were submitted to name the big fish; "Marty" edged out "Maximus" and "Porter," the latter in tribute to Porter Dean, a local barefoot fisherman.
