I would not. This guy comes with a 'pedigree' way beyond any of us here.


I'd agree...

Not that it is anything to consider with much weight here, but any tiger I have seen has not had as dark of bars. The bars on this fish seem too too dark overall in my humble opinion

The tail on that fish in the article looks like it's pretty pointed as well..

I agree with the above. Pretty cool looking fish, regardless. Question, though.... are hybrids always 100% infertile? If not, could this be a hybrid/pure cross?

The stocked Tigers we have here in Colorado have a brownish tint to them I caught a natural (non stocked) fish in Wisconsin and it was the most beautiful fish ever a nice powder blue tint to it. It was only 28" but had a 5X7 photo made of it and I was wearing a almost new "Barefoot Charlie" shirt A long lost landmark.

If I caught this fish, and just pinched a hook and she swam away, I’d call it a Tiger.

But, looking at all the variables, I’d call it 75% True, 25% tiger. Isn’t that Nature? Any cross breed will have variables, but certain traits will dominate!

Kinda like different strains of dogs breeding. Very much deluded;)

The color says pure but the stripes say tiger.

I think my Wisconsin hybrid if I remember correctly had a yellow eye! And a piece of family fishing lore my great uncle caught a 25 pound Tiger and his lure never hit the water, He casts out and before the lure hit the water the fish jumped out of the water and hit it in mid air. My dad caught his first Muskie in the same body of water and I got tangled up with a two foot Northern on a cane pole and that's where all the madness began for me! A place we call Muskie Pond!
