These fish are so cool but are so rare and hard to find around here. Hopefully I can catch one one day!

Massachusetts discontinued stocking Tiger Muskies in 2004 or 2005 - for budgetary reasons, what else is new, huh - so in the lakes where they are found (a list is available on the MA F&G site) these fish can be caught until the last one is taken, or dies of 'old age'. But they do live as long as 20 years, so some of the stocked waters may have Tigers for maybe 13 or 14 more years.
Good luck to anyone fishing for them. I took one while fishing for bass in Lake Cochituate, Natick, back in the late 1980's - it was about 1" less than the legal length of 28" - so I had to put it back & watch it swim away. That's been my sole experience with Tiger Muskies in MA.

A muskellunge (Esox masquinongy), also known as a muskelunge, muscallonge, milliganong, or maskinonge (and often abbreviated "muskie" or "musky"), is a large, relatively uncommon freshwater fish of North America. Muskellunge are the largest member of the pike family, Esocidae. The name comes from the Ojibwa word maashkinoozhe, meaning "ugly pike", by way of French masque allonge (modified from the Ojibwa word by folk etymology), "elongated mask." The French common name is masquinonge or maskinonge....
