Anyone have any idea how tigers can vary so much like in the pictures below? Are there different strains like if a spotted muskie vs if clear muskie mated with a pike?

My guess is that maybe the second one is not a tiger.

Hiya,

I'd agree with TCESOX here..

I believe that the second fish is a purebred.

Tricky with the 2nd pic. Pike seem to have pretty much the same pattern wherever I've caught them (except a rare blue n pike). However musky's vary widely from the beautiful almost golden striped ski's of Chautauqua to the nondescript grey of the French River - L. Nipeeing ski's. Wonder what strain is native to the body of water the 2nd fish came from and if it's a natural or stocked tiger.

Glad someone else made a thread about this as I was wondering about tiger genetics today. I was wondering where the next record tiger will come from and I was thinking I wonder if the growth potential from the parent musky effects the size limit to the tiger. An example would be a leech lake strain tiger that would end up getting bigger than a tiger that had a wisco strain fish as its musky parent. Anyone know if the parent strain makes a difference? And does anyone know what strain the MN DNR used to make their tigers they stock in the metro?
