Tigers usually only go after live bait... may be hard to target them threw the ice.

I think that since they aren't nearly as aggressive as pikes and their metabolism is slow, your chances of catching one are almost nonexistant. They are gonna be like the fish of a million jigs.

from utah outdoors website
Tips: These fish move freely and can be difficult to find. Fishing is never fast, but the thrill of catching one justifies hours of effort. Most muskie caught through the ice are hooked inadvertently by people fishing for other species. Get a second pole permit and rig a tip-up for tigers while you are fishing for perch. Use steel leader or one of the new super lines. Suspend a minnow 10-30 feet below the surface, off a point, or over open water near a school of perch. If you have your drag set correctly, and you play them right, you can usually get tigers up to the ice. It?s pretty hard getting a big tiger through an eight-inch hole, so the fish often come off at that point. Use extreme care if you try to pull them through, since their teeth are razor sharp.
thats enough encouragment to get me to set a line for them thins winter

what sort of stucture would you target for them and depth if the water comes back up i know a few spots that have big boulders in 10 or so ft of water and i know of some good rocky slopes that are relitvely smooth or should i look for muddy/sandy bottoms ?
