Yup HAD to kill it. Damn that freedom of choice, eh....smh. I practice catch and release 9 times out of ten. It was a legal keep of 38 inches from the illegal 36 inches and my first tiger muskie ever. But when I here crying of nonconformity from a group of opinions on c&r, it makes me want to keep any fish species of legal limit within regs more and more.

you're missing the point.

gross like most mountain lakes... is a sucker's paradise. they put in tiger muskies because they grow fast, and have the voracious appetites of their parents without the risk of them taking over a lake unchecked like pike sometimes has a tendency to do... IE they put them in to control sucker or other populations of fish. Same with wipers, splake, tiger trout, etc. they also put in relatively few tiger muskies in gross as fingerlings. from there, after mortality and predation, you can imagine how few there actually are in that lake.
the overall attitude on this site here is that Colorado fishing sucks and could be alot better if managed more fairly towards the desires of all fishermen who come here, which is why people hold contempt for the CPW and how they go about maintaining the fisheries.. hence why fishermen who "get it", tend to be more vigilant with selective harvest. so it's not the smartest move here, to post a picture of a big tiger muskie on a stringer.

keep whatever you want as long as you're legal, but just because it's legal doesn't make it right. some food for thought if you continue to post on this forum, or ask people for help, post reports, etc.

No I get it and I appreciate your comment. It's the jumping to conclusions from a photo and judging me as if I'm a careless fisherman without asking questions. It was in 2009 I was a novice at fishing and uneducated. Lesson learned I made a mistake didn't think members were going to get offended at it without questioning me first. I should have incorporated with that post that I would have gladly let that fish go If I had the knowledge I have now. Just thought I would share the catch my life. I just don't like being submissive towards the judged comments because of a mistake I made when I was young and uneducated. It makes me want to say stupid comments back without question. My bad. I'm here to help and maintain/promote the right fishing practices of selective harvesting to create a better fishery. Happy fishing

Issue yourself a citation with a fine of $30. Pay your your fine at the local liquor store and take two 12-packs of Colorado craft beer home. Then contemplate your criminality and resolve to not be a repeat offender.
