NEW TIGER MUSKIE STATE RECORD:

Past Muskies, Inc. Member David Hickman from Tri-Cities, has captured the record for biggest tiger in Washington State. July 26, 2014 @ Curlew Lake. 50.5 inches and 37.88 lbs. Dave has been a dedicated tiger muskie angler for many years and has thrown his share of those 10,000 casts they say it takes to catch one. Not to mention a behemoth like this one. Congrats, Dave, on a lifetime trophy.
