Hi,Folks !!!

Since the tiger musky is a cross between a musky and a pike, wouldn't it be better and

more correct to call it muskypike instead of calling it tiger musky?

What do you think ?

Let me know !!!

I get where your trying to come by but I think it would be weird calling it basically a deformed pike/pike. The word muskellunge as I believe it is defined as a deformed pike. So maybe that’s why it is called tiger.

Anywhere I've fished where Tigers have been stocked or occur in the same water as true Muskie or Pike you must follow the Muskie regs on the Tigers. AKA you can't bring home five 22" Tigers.

"Masquinongy comes from the Ojibwa word maashkinoozhe, meaning "ugly pike", by way of French masque allongé (modified from the Ojibwa word by folk etymology), "elongated mask."
The most logical thing might be to combine Lucius with Masquinongy somehow if we didn't already have a name for the hybrids. Personally, I think "lightningsides" might be a better name.
I think some things are what they are. You're never going to convert Americans to saying "queue." You're never going to get New Yorkers to say "waiting in line" and you're never going to get Midwesterners to say "waiting on line."

They will forever be the Cleveland Indians for me. The Washington Redskins. Lake Calhoun in Minnesota.

You can rename them if you like but there isn't a reason to do so. Maybe it's just easier to learn to call it a Tiger Muskie?

OK, I think we can agree that is awful.

It shouldn't be called the roof of your mouth, it should be the celling...I doubt that term will change either.

Said no one "this is like changing all those racist names of sports teams". Brian: "Yes, that is exactly what it is like."
