Default Nice Tiger Musky at Gross Reservoir

This past weekend, my buddy went up to the inlet at Gross Reservoir where he spotted a tiger musky. He tied on a rapala and after a few casts picked up a nice ~40" Tiger Musky.

I don't know how to post pics here.. so here's a link to the photo on my hobby site:

I've seen a few posts on here regarding Muskies at Gross, and thought i'd post this up as proof that you can actually catch'em!

Nice fish bro! That is a once in a lifetime fish, especially out of Gross. Good job. Great picture as well.

Thanks, I'll pass on the congratulations.

He didn't catch anything for like 3 hours after that one until evening when trout started rising like crazy. Picked up a dozen or so browns and rainbows on a yellow caddis around 5pm.

Nice looking tiger. I've heard of plenty of 'em being spotted, but relatively few being caught. Impressive. Thanks for posting.
