Nice fish. Conesus has been good for tigers this year from what I've seen. Haven't been there myself yet. I saw a 40" tiger posted last week. Guy stated he got three meals out of it.

Yeah i saw that also. Tigers should be strictly C&R. Easy enough to get a Replica made and no reason to kill Um to eat at all.

I kept one deep hooked from conesus years ago.  It was not good at all.  It was very fishy and mushy.  I will not keep one for the table ever again!

That is wierd why would you keep them when there is better table options out there. I don't eat fish and musky would be the last on my list lol.

Nice fish!!! 

I've kept a few over my life that I had to eat because I couldn't revive them or they bled out and it's similar to pike in my opinion if taken care of properly but I really would rather not eat another.  It's way to much actual filets of that particular taste for me.  Now if they tasted like walleye that would be different!!!!!  That being said I know several people that target them to eat, but I've seen people eat a lot I wouldn't touch.  Bite has picked up here dramatically on tigers trolling.  Several recent days every boat out trolling I talked to hooked up good fish.  I've had more in the last 2 weeks than any 6 weeks all season.

Hey Justin it's a god damn thing they don't taste like walleye!! First off I wouldn't know how they taste, cause I've never caught one!!! Second if they are a fish of a thousand casts and taste like walleye there wouldn't be enough reels in the country to keep up with supply and demand. If all the guys I know jigging and trolling for eyes were casting for muskies most lakes wouldn't be safe, kinda like turning the pages of time back to the snagging days for salmon!! Imagine that everyday, week in and week out:lipssealed: LOL. Keep at bud, best 2nd part of eye season right around the corner!!  Pap.
