Fish Commission Study
« on: Today at 03:14:48 PM »

The PA Fish Commission is planning to conduct their third consecutive year of trap netting at Nockamixon Lake for tiger muskellunge/muskellunge in mid April. As soon as the study is completed and the results tabulated, I will post a link to the results.

Today, I spoke with the biologist that helped stock those Fall 2012 fish. The first nets were put out and retrieved - they captured 11 Tigers and 7 Pures ranging. Pures ranged from 25-27 inches / 4.5 to 6.25 lbs. Said they were real healthy looking. Also, said that many were collected in the nets which were placed where he and I float stocked them - might be coincidence - but interesting to note. They will be pulling a second sampling on Apr 22-24. I'm going to try and tag along to get some photos and maybe put together a website article detailing.
Thanks to all sponsors, supporters, and members that help us stock and raise the money to purchase these fish. Good stuff!

Awesome report Archie, thanks for sharing the details. Great to see that our babies are growing up!

Any details on how big the Tigers were, just curious. Looking forward to learning how the second sampling goes...

Great job on the article Archie. Just awesome the number of our stocked advanced pures that turned up in the nets. It won't be long and they'll be hitting the 30" mark. Thanks for getting out with the biologists and looking forwards to the video!
