Man, I'm so pumped! My bucket list of trout I haven't caught just got smaller. Went out a few weeks back and not only caught a tiger, but the biggest, hardest fighting fish of my life! Man, it was awesome! ...and he tasted good too.😋

To those who have a problem with it, I get it, completely understand, but I make no apologies. It's not an endangered species. It's not rare, though somewhat uncommon. The 4 others I caught that day were released. Of the 100 or so (of varying other trout species) I've caught this season, I've kept and eaten less than a dozen, the rest released, This was my part in conservation. I will fish my way, you fish yours. I hope you all have good luck and a great day on your next fishing adventure!
they aren't a natural fish by any means but why keep one if you can keep a brown or a rainbow or bookie. mostly because they are rare. But you can do whatever you want haven't seen many tiger trout on here that big. one other reason for not keeping them is that they serve a purpose in most lakes they are stalked in.(controlling fish populations). the one that you kept may not have been a big deal but what if there numerous people keeping them at the same lake? it will defeat the purpose of stalking them. its not the same as keeping a wiper because wiper are easier to create. its actually really hard for biologists to create tiger trout because brookies are char and browns are trout.

I do agree with the whole "to each their own", but I'm also mostly a catch and release fisherman except for certain species. But I mean would anyone in their right mind decide to eat a tiger muskie? Just curious...Ö I see no difference because then you're taking away from a species that can't be reproduced on its own, and you're taking it away from other anglers. I just don't get it personally, but it takes all kind of people to make the world go round, right?
The name of the place wasn't given and there isn't much back ground in the picture so its not all bad. :) Nice fish for sure along with the others here. Good to know some of them are reaching these larger sizes. Gives everyone something to look forward to. Great catch!
