Back in the 1930s, a Chicago-based sportswriter who regularly vacationed in the Boulder Junction Wisconsin area, coined the phrase “Musky Capital of the World” to describe his favorite fishing destination. Local resorts picked up on the idea and over the course of the next 11 or 12 years, used the term intermittently on their promotional literature.
