Those are some amazing fish, you're right about the one male being one heck of a specimen! I really do love their patterning. That one you caught certainly does have some monster shoulders and a face like a grouper! Glad you guys had a great day!

Thanks everyone!

All I can really say is it's the fishery and proper management that have proven to be successful! It's pretty amazing to have a fishery where your average fish is 20" and it's not uncommon for anglers to catch 10+ fish in a day!

Because they're such a rarity and such an aggressive fish, fisheries knew that in order for the fishery to be successful, a no kill and no power boats regulation would have to be implemented. This has been the critical factor that has put the fishery on the map!

I was there a couple weeks ago and caught some of the larger fish as well, up to 26-inches, and some really nice males! Unfortunately on that trip I was by myself and was limited to my photos of fish. =S

Default Tiger Trout Pics

I've only ever caught one and don't have any pics, but I thought there should be a thread for tiger trout pics.

Bunch of years ago they used to stock a bunch of them in the local 'pond', more like a really big pool behind a damn in a small river.

They are a riot! Not super selective for the most part and you never have to guess when they hit a streamer or a retrieved nymph.

From my fishing buddy up in the Wisconsin Driftless region. Natural Tiger, not a stocker.

Beautiful tiger! That has to be one of the most striking colored tigers that I have seen.. I have seen lots of pictures of them, but I still need to get somewhere to catch one! It's on the list.
