Whether it is season or not...that is an awesome catch and it was well worth the pics.  I would get a replica done...even if it was in season, would be a shame not to let it grow bigger.

It looks like a Musky to me not a Tiger. Many get confused by the bars thinking it's a Tiger but the following would be helpful to ID them. That's a real nice catch of a lifetime!!!

  I'm going with Tiger Muskie on this one !      A true barred muskie has no markings on the cheeks and gill plates.
A Tiger Muskie does !   The muskie these guys caught has tell tale cheek markings of a Tiger Muskie.    The bars on a true muskie are consistent and not broken.   The markings on this muskie seem to be broken and not consistent.     A sure way to tell would be the tips of the tail !    A Tiger has rounded tips whereas a true muskie has pointed tips on their tail ;)

Definitely a beautiful fish and congrats on the catch/release and the quality photo....i.e. no massive amounts of blood involved unlike a couple of unmentionable pics from last season.  The photo shows a bunch of very understandably proud fishing buddies, is done cleanly, and makes it much more believable that the fish was immedietly released.  I do without a doubt agree on the replica 100%.  Congrats again!!
Success requires work so get out of the house and on the ice. :)

I was thinking that was a Tiger for sure... I just didn't want to break the ice on that one.

My buddy got this fish to the hole and I landed it. It was incredible. Only a 6in hole to. If it was any fatter and i mean any fatter it wouldnt have physically went thru the hole. The fish was released within a minute of being landed and swam very fast and powerful back to the depths. It was a fish of a life time thats for sure.

Its a true muskie. Tigers are not stocked in this lake only true blue muskie.
