Default Tiger Muskies

I've been trying hard this spring to nail a few tiger muskies. So far I've caught a 26" out of Prospect Ponds, and an 18" out of Pinewood. They're tuff to figure out - anyone had any success with these guys?

Basshunter,
I have to say that I hate you. j/k. I have been trying to catch a tiger since march without any success. I have tried at Gross, Pinewood, Quincy, Barr, and Prospect Ponds without any luck. I have seen many of those stockers at Pinewood by the boat ramp and a nice upper 30" at Quincy chase my girlfriend's lure but that was it. What did you catch them on and where at at Pinewood and Prospect Ponds?
thanks.

I have had good luck at Gross res. for the tigers. Best advice I can give is to be very quite and low to the water. Fish can see very well out of the water and at a very low angle. Tigers are more aggressive then musky but not even close to the aggressive behavior of the pike. A better way to put it; if they think something is up they will not bite. I have used everything like a musky killer loaded with a weight on the front to get it deep, giant 8" musky killers which I remove the last treble hook and add a Colorado blade (to slow things down), dead bait with a circle hook works very well, bass spinners with 6-9" plastics hooked on( bright colors), Rapala's original floating lure size 18, Yo-Zuri Hydro Magnum Deep Diver and weight, and a ton of home made lures which have done the best. Throw big lures for big fish, it is that simple. But be prepared to fish a long time for a few hits. This year because of the weather I will not even try until late summer and fall. Hope this helps and good luck....Pope

Gotmuskie --- the DOW & Colorado Muskies, Ink. stocked 200 (19-22 inch) Muskie in Evergreen Reservoir last month. Besides the stockers, they have some that were already in there 50 inches long. They should be in the shallow water near the wildlife habitat area.

I read all this in Colorado F & H.
It said to try Kastmasters, or spoons w/ a steel leader. (On the stockers)

Might be worth a trip.

Thanks James. I already knew that though. they also stocked 200 in pinewood and seeley. I know Brett Knight who is the colorado chapter president of MuskiesInc and he helps the DOW stock them so I am usually up to date on when and where and precise location released. You should meet him sometime, he owns Absolute Angler on Wadworth Blvd in Arvada. Very friendly guy and he even gives free fly fishing lessons.
