Fish: Tiger Muskie

The fish of 10,000 casts!

Post By: Goonch      Posted: 7/12/2017 5:40:00 PM     Points: 9    
I've got a ton of respect for any muskie head that fishes for these beasts year round. I absolutely love them but most days they drive me mad! Which is why I only devote 4 or 5 days each season fishing for them, usually unsuccessfully. Monday was NOT one of those day. I had the afternoon off so me and my buddy decided to roll the dice on a musky lake. They weather seemed perfect, the water level and clarity looked great, and the temp was right. We ended the day with two fish, the first was 38" and the second was a fat 41". Absolutely epic afternoon of fishing! I just hope it doesn't take another 10,000 casts to connect again. Cheers!

I think I saw one of those boys there a couple weeks ago chasing my lure lol. Congratulations to you! Judging from the way that you handled them I'd imagine that you let them go free correct?

Of course they both went back in the drink! I practice 100% catch and release on every species. Weird I know, I just like catching fish

You'll also notice they're both missing their left pelvic fin. Anyone know what that's about? I'm sure they were removed by the CPW before they were stocked but why?

dam!! That thing is a monster! I do believe that would be a pretty solid Muskie showing in most places. Well done!

Well done!!!

The missing fin may be a method of marking when they were stocked, at Quincy they used to use dye on the gill plate to indicate the year stocked. None the less a great catch, congrats !

I'm going to build a lake and fill it with Tigers and feeder fish......then charge anglers to catch them LOL.....nice fish, I've not put a tiger on the bank in almost 30 years........10000 cast's is a low estimate~!
