That got me interested, so I did a fairly extensive internet search trying several different combinations of search terms, but couldn't find anything on that. Could you point me to a reference?ePiC said:Tiger Muskie are breeding in the Kawartha Lakes (Ontario) and have basically eaten the lakes clean.
Yes, I do know that they are a sterile hybrid, and as I have said, I have never kept one. I was asking because a friend at work and I have a disagreement on this topic. He is telling me that they are not good at all to eat and my opinion is they would be good, being they are part pike. That is the reason I asked. I guess I should have been more descriptive with my question.Abomb said:Scorpion, if there is any fish in colorado that should be released every time and never eaten it would be a tiger muskie.
I figured this was the case, just wasn't sure. I hope I didn't come off like a jerk or anything. . .By the way if you are consistently catching tigers you are a way better fisherman than me LOL They are a very hard fish to catch and to be honest I have never caught a tiger only pike.scorpion_bsk said:[

Good point. I remember one time wading chest deep pike fishing with my brother in law and he was almost finished reeling in, he turned to look at me and was just pulling his lure out and a big pike came out after it, missed , but made a loud splash and scared the crap out of him. Pike are funny about following lures and you are right that figure 8 will seal the deal. Probably the most exciting way to catch a pike too.long lost said:hey neal/co, are you finishing your retrieve with a figure 8. if they are comming up to your feet on a chase that is a good tech to try and finish the deal.
