Tigers

7 posts in this topic

I just read that most natural tigers are the result of a male pike fertilizing musky eggs. Sounds right with muskies spawning later than pike. Question is, can you get tigers by fertilizing pike eggs with milk from a musky?

From everything I've read, it's a one-way street, but I would second the suggestion to post on the muskie thread.

it can be done either way. most state stocking programs use the male pike method but some use the opposite. i can't say for fact but i surmise it has something to do with region and when the fish are ready to breed and the need to do it while the male is ripe and a female is gravid. i remember reading something on this awhile back. the size and characteristics of the hybrid is up to the female. anyway that's the gist. oh... a tiger is a barred muskie (great lakes strain) coupled with a pike.

If it goes both ways you would think musky eggs with pike milk would produce bigger hybrids?

i've not heard that either way where it's''100 percent fact''. but going by the female being the decider in genetics dominance i'd say yeah, sounds good to me. but studies are studies, lol. took 24 years for the fisheries in tennesee to figure out longer living minnesota walleye don't get bigger than their shorter living strain even in the same waters. go figure. i wonder if their native walleye are now tainted with the genes from here? probly take 50 years to figure that out, lol.

    • Everything turned out awsome, I'll definitely be hanging the bellies again. Cold smoked then heat with more smoke.
    • love the answer thirdeye!!!!  hang onto that last bottle!!
    • Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers.    I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

    • You miss the Bush administration? Howso considering the Obama administration was pretty much the same only cooked a little longer?
    • many of my 2nd graders have more frontal cortex development........
    • My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment.    I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.
    • That's what I miss most about the Bush administration. Sure, they were evil, but at least they were freaking competent. Sure, they lied a lot, but at least it wasn't about easily disprovable things like crowd size. When they lied, they lied to further their agenda, not to mask their hurt fee fees.   All Presidents are ridiculed.
      This is the only one who takes it personally. Such a baby. Sad!
