You have talked about the high lake Tiger Muskie a few times and I was wondering how many lakes have been stocked and with how many fish ?
I would also like to know what else do the Tigers have to feed on in these lakes?
Thanks for your time.
There were two high/alpine lakes stocked with tiger muskies back in 1997.
The first was a 7-8 acre lake and the other was about 10 acres. The first lake received 70 musky fingerlings and the slightly
bigger lake was stocked with approx. 90 tigers. I believe they were put there to get eastern brook trout numbers down.
Both lakes were a one time plant and "IF" there are any tigers left in there,I can only speculate that it would only be but a few. These are more like ponds and I doubt they would have much to eat over the years. A cougar or a bear probably made a meal of them. Don't take my numbers as solid fact but it should be pretty close,I'm basing all of this on memory....which can be dangerous at times.
I think it was sooner than '97....maybe 2005. Sorry,can't recall at the moment
