Fish: Tiger Muskie

Muskieís Inc.

After looking around, Iíve seen that we used to have a Muskie Inc. chapter here in Colorado, not just the Mountain West division out of Utah. IWhat was the reason why they disbanded it here?

I was a member of that club for years, maybe Fish For All will see this and give his perspective , He was president for a while .

Kev, fish for all hasn't been on the site for 2 years now. I think we have so few muskie available here in Colorado there is not a huge group of people chasing them around here.

Thatís unfortunate, Iíve been hitting tigers really hard this year and was hoping there was still a resource like that still available to get involved.

When I think back to the mid 90s around when the record was caught, I remember seeing big tigers (40"+) in quite a few waters as the stocking was heavy back then.

It's been quite a long time since I've seen one anywhere, mind you I'm not actively targeting them (we weren't back then either) but clearly the number of them is much lower than 20 years ago or something else changed.

Nate Zelinsky posted a big one to his Facebook that apparently came out of Antero.

Iíve been seeing some nice ones starting to come out of Antero. Lots of fish in there for them to grow. Never targeted tigers there, maybe through the ice this season!

Do tiger Muskie fishing folks usually erase them?
I know theyíve put quite a few in Antero in an attempt to control the sucker population.
Iíve seen two pix from friends last season one was thirty inches the other thirty three both were released.

Yes, legally you can keep 1 fish over 36Ē per day. Majority of muskie guys practice catch and release because of how elusive they really are and keeping one is pretty pointless. Tigers are sterile and do not reproduce so whatever they put in a lake is the maximum in there. CPW does this because tigers canít take over a lake and if there is no need for them anymore they can be gone within 10 years in a lake. They are a beautiful fish and a management tool, so I will always release ones that I catch .
