The Tiger Muskie is commonly stocked in situations where reproduction is not wanted, because this fish is usually sterile.
It grows faster initially than the Muskellunge, although in nature it usually does not ultimately grow as large because it does not live as long. Even so, it can still reach 25 pounds or more under ideal conditions. The fish shown in the photo is actually only about 5 or 6 years old!
Another desirable characteristic of this species is that it tolerates warmer water than either Northern Pike or Muskellunge.
Tiger Muskie Advice:
We commonly stock this species to control Largemouth Bass in ponds that do not have Northern Pike. Stock 1-2 per Surface Acre.
