Re: Muskellenge, Northern Pike or Tiger Musky?
Food for thought: In one well thought out and conducted study the researchers found that: For every
1 ----- Musky caught in the study there were
3.1 --- Tiger Muskies caught and
4.2 --- Pike caught when species densities were matched in the fishing area and angler hours were equal. In short a Pike is easiest with a Tiger being a bit harder to catch. The true Muskies are the hardest and are 4 times as hard to catch as a big Pike.
Are Pike easy? Does your experience reflect this? Does the ratios change when it's big trophy sized fish we are speaking off? (the fish in the study were pretty well size matched and in that 2-3 ft length) if I recall right.
