One of the largest and most elusive fish that swims in Minnesota, muskellunge wait in weed beds before lunging forward to clamp onto their prey.
The tiger muskie, a sterile hybrid of the northern pike and the muskie, is stocked in several heavily fish lakes in the Twin Cities. Like muskie, this fish has dark markings on a light background but has rounded tail fins.
Stocking muskellunge into several additional lakes would offset increasing fishing pressure.
