Default Fishing for the elusive trophy tiger trout.

Box ticked

I've been hitting a few different lakes across Utah searching for a good sized tiger trout. Tonight it all came together. Using 4 lb test and micro jigs I caught this beauty right at dark. It was one of the hardest fighting fish ive caught on light tackle. It made multiple runs. I swear it took nearly 20 minutes to land.
Unfortunately I may have unfinished buisness with this lake so if anyone asks it was caught at Tibble Fork Res.
My kids were with me and we all enjoyed a day you often hear about when someone says "you should have been here yesterday." Well we were.

No. The guy who caught it has caught several really nice big tigers at Panguitch (among other places). A year ago last fall he caught one right next to me at Panguitch that was probably in the 5-7 pound range too.

The cool thing, in my opinion, is that Panguitch is pumping out these big tigers without chubs and only stocked trout as forage.
