So what do you guys think, is it a Tiger Muskie? I caught this Muskellunge two months ago, I kind of passed it off as just a barred Muskie, nothing else.
But after Da Greek Yooper gave me a call today, he said he thinks it’s a Tiger Muskie.
I did a little researching on the species and found this picture of the different species. From the looks of it, I think it’s just a barred Muskellunge.
They say the only way to tell the difference is the round caudal fin in back and the round paired fins on the bottom.
From the looks of the picture, the bottom fins do look rounded, but it’s hard to tell if the caudal fin is rounded too.
Either way, if it is or it isn’t, it’s one beautiful looking fish.
Most the Muskies I’ve caught in Lake St. Clair have been spotted, this is the first one I’ve pulled out of the lake that is different looking.
