The most difficult Massachusetts game fish to obtain.

On the way home from a successful pike trip I decided to stop at another lake. I met a fellow ice fisherman and started chatting with him, he pulled out this 12 pound tiger muskie to show me and I was beside myself. I mentioned to him he just won the lottery of fishing. It was awesome to see one up close and I was fortunate to be able take some pictures of that amazing catch (see below).

Though I have made many attempts for this rare and elusive fish I have yet to connect with one. I hope to cross this species off my list someday. Though it's extremely difficult to hook into a tiger, that doesn't mean I won't try. Time seems to running out for those who want one. Now that the state of MA appears to have stopped stocking them, what a shame.

Above our Massachusetts state record and Ice fishing world record, caught by Jim Lambert. I had the pleasure of meeting him and got the chance to ice fish with him once, real nice guy and a good fisherman.

Last year, I happened to see this very picture above at a local bait shop of this gentleman. That same day when I left the bait shop I headed to Chauncy to fish for Tigers and ironically while there I happened to bump into that same gentlemen. He told me all about his story about this fine catch.

Below some pictures from a recent NY muskie trip.
Myself and a friend where chasing pure strain muskies. Not even thinking we would have a chance at one of the rare tigers that get caught once a blue moon. I was lucky enough to land this beauty but unfortunately for my friend, he lost a 48" or so pure strain beast at boat side. I am currently in the process of prepping up my boat for more muskie trips to NY in the future.
