Brown Trout Are Sissies
By Tim Romano & Kirk Deeter
Uh, yea that post a couple of days ago about brown trout being the biggest, baddest, mutha's... This you-tube video begs to differ.
Tim,shoot me an email, I want to ask you a question or two about your "secret" lake.Thanks.Ken
Here in Indiana they have been used many times to control shad populations. they occasionally get into small creeks like Wildcat Creek. We have had a few suprised Smallmouth anglers over the years. Fishin' along and catching 14 inch Smallies and suprise a 30" Tiger shows up!They have not been as successful as Wipers in controlling shad. So the DNR has favored Wipers over Tiger Muskies. Both, of course, are theoretically sterile so they usually just burn out and there is little need to control populations, they have a short life span.
Some Western states have actually used tiger muskie to control undesirable fish in lakes. Stock 2-3 tigers per surface acre, come back a couple years later and gill net the tigers out and restock with "desirable" (whatever that means) fish.
Watch it, Joey!Chad,I think you're right. It is a Tiger Musky. The you-tube post says Pike, but it looks like a Musky to me. I believe this is somewhere like Norway or another northern European country like that.tr
ALL trout are for sissies...
It's a Tiger Musky guys. I would like to know where Brown Trout and Tiger Musky Co-Habitat. Hey and I bet he did get it down!That gives you any idea why small streamers don't work most of the time on Muskies by small I mean 6-8 inches. I don't know how big that Brown was but I bet it isn't smaller than 12 inches. 12 Weight/12 inch flies Scary!!!I like trout but..... Trout as bait that is precious.
If by "sissy" you mean smaller than an apex predator then yes.
Hes pike food now. But I doubt the pike got the whole fish into its stomach.
