Actually, I caught a few years ago in northern WI but didn't know what they were. They are one of the most beautiful fish and mainly from pictures and the couple I caught years ago the stream bred accidents are just more colorful than the hatchery bred fish. Don't know if others agree but just MO, and we all know about those.
A couple not-great pics of tigers I caught two years ago:
Obligatory underwater pic of a nice 20 incher:
An 18 incher taken from the same hole:
I caught one a few years ago in full spawn regalia, but due to the length of the fight and the difficulty I had getting the hook out of his jaw, I released him without taking a pic. Hoping I catch another one like that someday soon so I can get a pic to show everyone the Jurassic Park colors these things dress up in.
I got one of these unicorns this past weekend on a tail-water by my home in Md. There are wild browns and the random brook in the upper part of the river, with stocked bows and palominos in the lower portion. Really surprised they are in these waters....the likelihood seems pretty low.
