Sad indeed. Thanks for posting. I saw it was low about 2 weeks ago, but not quite that low. Kara Lamb posts updates on the water along that pipeline fairly often. She posts the planned draw-downs as well as estimated water heights in feet ASL and at lake level. Keep an eye for her posts, but yeah, it fluctuates nearly yearly to that extent. Fish for trout when it's low just before ice. The bigger ones come out to play.
Sad to see a dead tiger. Jman I was up there 2 weeks ago and saw a big one probably 30-35 inches but very thick. Other people in the cove had seen some crusing. Also they put some more in there becuase there was a lot of 6 inch tigers hanging close to the bank in fishermans cove. Saw a guy catch one of the babies on a worm

Sad to see a dead tiger muskie. Pinewood has to be one of the most fluctuating lakes in this state, but I wouldn't think that was the cause of the muskies death. Pinewood has been even lower than that. Tiger muskie only have a typical life span of around 8 years, so it could have been just it's time. Who knows for sure.
