Wow! Very nice tiger.
Seems like the toothies are hot right now. Maybe the warmer weather and stormy conditions? Whatever the case, the bite may be on. June is usually a prime month for chasing river muskies.

Thanks fishidiot. We have been keying in on two things...the moon and the barometric pressure. Today there was a downpour, then right after the rain ceased, bam...it happened. The first tiger I got was within 10 minutes of moonset (full moon), and this one a little over two hours before moonset (new moon). Something about that drop in pressure and the moon makes them crazy....or atleast I think. Who really knows with these things

T' great tiger. You are tearing it up!Seems to me keeping a eye on actual sunset and moon rise and the actual sunrise and moonset are the times. The fringes of the day. If ya combine that with a front (pressure swing) and a full or new moon ya got the super storm of primo conditions.

Thanks Paco. Yeah I couldnt agree more. I got two musky on a conventional rod last year so I went back and looked at the times the pictures were taken, and cross referenced it with the solunar tables from last year and it all started to make a pattern. Plus I read about it a few times. I think that's the key. I also changed up my fly patterns this Spring and it seems to make a difference. I caught that fish on a 5-6" gamechanger. Dark olive over white with a black stripe. All the fish I've landed, hooked, and had follows from so far have been from flies with two distinct colors on top of eachother. Black over white, olive over white, etc.

Dude that is a great fish, big head on that beast. All this musky action is too much for me I need to get out ASAP! Lol. Congrats man.

I have a question for the musky tribe we have going in here. I'm looking at Tloomis' fish here and the tigers are striped up pretty distinctly. Do tigers go clear phase at all to a certain extent in creeks and rivers?

Or is that just a purebred thing (clear phase) and tigers stay heavily striped regardless

I've never seen a clear phase tiger. Tigers are usually pretty well marked.

Clear phase purebreds are actually pretty rare. Almost all of them have some markings if you look closely.

I've only caught 1 clear phase up on the Chip' in Wisco. One in pa that was close (faint stripes)two years ago. I was told that clear phase fish will only come from a river and usually only mature breading age fish.

I joined the club today as well. Looked like Jake's only smaller, maybe 25 inches. Got it on a relatively small rebel trackdown. We were canoeing the Swattie. Man did he put up a fight! Literally 5 minutes into the float.
