Re: Some musky from Western Pennsylvania
Mike, Esocids are a tough fish to electrofish since they are so powerful and if you keep the current on rather than switching it on and off they will usually bolt out ahead of the current. That is why the PFBC uses trap nets to survey for musky. I believe when they conduct e-fishing surveys, they leave the current on which might be why they don't collect them...or maybe they didn't collect any when you were with them.
Strut...I believe the pike was just under 30. The largest pike I believe I ever e-fished was a 37 inch lunker out of Conneaut Lake.
Yes, the tiger musky was a real nice fish...the nicest one I ever saw...a true trophy.
