    Kyle, I was thinking exactly the same thing. My initial thought was, brook+ brown= greater than the sum of its parts.... Synergistic tastiness?

      Those are some great fish. Apparently it's time to head back to Ami.

        In the wild.....not "a" wild. I know the stars basically have to align for these guys to be created and it's definitely not happening in the Ami.

            So tiger trout are a cross breeding of brown and brookies?

              Yeah, brook milt on brown eggs.

                Congrats to both of you on those Tigers. I wish I could say I caught a tiger by the tail - it's plain to see.

                    Now that is a true unicorn. Congrats, that fish is an absolute gem.

                      Wild tigers do exist in GA. Very limited in wastershed.

                      I have heard tell of 3 from reliable sources. One gentleman that has caught 2.

                      Those 3 fish were caught across about 40 years though. Only one recently.

                        Occasionally someone on this forum stumbles across one while bluelining. Nothing like that, though. I'll bet that the owners of the private waters would like for them to come home before Lemon Pepper Day.

                          Fourth post, and you have the whole board jealous. I'll bet that even most HOF members have never even seen a Tiger.

                            I caught one on the Tuck about 10 years ago. I took a pic and sent it to the NC DNR, and asked if they stock them. The response was "no", and the guy asked if he could have my permission to use the pic in his presentations, which I naturally said 'Of course!". So, if you see a NC DNR presentation with a Tiger Trout pic, that was my pic.

                            BTW, it was a dink compared to the one pictured in this thread, that thing is amazing!

                              Lol. Yeah. Sorry. Iím not usually one to brag. I just had to share in budwicks joy for his one in a million fish. If it was stocked by private water so be it. Never thought I would catch that sucker!
