Is the tiger muskie produced by a male pike and female muskie? Or a male muskie and female pike? Or are both ways possible?

Both ways are possible but in nature it's most likely to have a male pike and female muskie. In hatchery situations they always use male pike to female muskie because of the spawning cycle. It's a lot easier to hold a male pike for sperm instead of trying to hold a female pike with eggs.

Hybrids are sterile for the most part.

Something I find interesting is that in the lake I live on, a very dark stained body of water, the muskies have virtually no markings, with green/silver sides. However, the Tigers, which are naturally occurring and much less common, have bright, bold markings. Northern pike in the chain also have bold, clear markings. Why would the tigers not be more subdued in coloration like the muskies?

They must be more influenced by the northern pike part of their heritage. I've caught tigers in crystal clear waters and highly murky waters and the fish are very close in coloration, the murky water fish are slightly less bold looking, so it must be the pike genes.
