Tiger Muskie Help at St. Croix

Morning all. Just wondering if anyone has any advice for catching these fellas? I've had a uni Muskie, three uni Pike and I've even caught one Tiger Muskie, but they were all in the Pike Alley corner. I've fished for the Tigers on three occasions, all in the Sandy Cay location highlighted by all of the know YouTubers and have used the ubersheet for times, but I'm yet to even have a bite! Has something changed I'm not aware of?

It took me a while before I got my first uni Tiger Muskie. Perseverance will eventually nab you one. I've had the best luck fishing the right hand reeds across the lake at the "little" rock location at Sandy Cape. My most recent was caught on a 8' #6/0 Green Crank. Partly cloudy, 60 degress at 2:40 pm using my double clutch retrieval method lol.

Thanks for offering your help, although as per my original post I'm already doing all of the known stuff in the right spot, hence just checking if anything had changed.

Cheers, you're not wrong. I haven't had my float sit so still for so long during peak periods in a hot spot since the Halloween Gar experiment! I fished for 30 in game mins with the lure and got the usual little tickles that I couldn't hit. After switching to the bait rod I finally got two bites in the final 1.5 in game hours. Both were Tiger Muskie. Just didn't realise I'd have to be that patient given how easy I've found the normal Muskie and Pike. Thx tho, much appreciated.

I then went back to Pike Alley and the first fish I caught was a Tiger Muskie!
