Default Look what I found at the Q...

This may seem odd but I think the Quincy go-ers will find this report-worthy.

I also would have posted this a few days ago but my computer has been down and out since the day this happened.

SOOO I went out to the Q Friday afternoon (6-25) to try my luck. As soon as I got there I decided to try the shoreline closest to the ranger station since I hadn't really tried it before.

I'm walking parallel to the shore, just casting and covering water, and as I was walking I noticed something by my feet. I let out a loud "Whoa!" when I saw this sitting at my foot

I know a dead fish isn't generally something people care much about, but considering the almost mythical nature surrounding the tiger muskie at Quincy, I thought you all might be at least slightly interested to see this. I see that people on colorado fishing forums are always asking if there are any left. Well, this shows that the muskie are still there, if this wasn't the last one, of course.

I'm surprised how small this fish was. It must have been a male, but it still kind of small even for that. I looked as if it had been dead for a couple days maybe. It was pretty stiff and a little bloated with a big kink in its back. You can see the bulge from the kink towards the upper part of the fish.

Well after I found this I went to the ranger station to let the ranger know about what I found. She walked down with me and was about as surprised as I was to see it. I asked her a few questions about the muskie there. She told me that they generally live about 10 years and the last time they were stocked was 2001. She also said it is unlikely they will ever stock them again because they put too much pressure on the other fish in the lake.

Well that's all the info from this little happening that I can think of now. If I think of anything else relevant I'll update.

If they generally live 10 years, then that is probably going to be a more and more common sight now in the next few years

Good info, Chris.

Confirming what I'd thought about that lake for awhile now. Although, that does seem like a small one for possibly having been stocked way back in '01.

That's a little puzzling.

Oh yeah, glad to see you're still gettin' out and wettin' some lines!
