i'm curious. Is that a pike or a tiger musky? I always thought that the veriticle stripes was a tiger and a pike had "kidney" bean shapes. Either way, its still cool.

well if it was taken in europe, they have pike there, but possibly a lil different breed, i was reading something about them in my NAFC mag and how the pike in europe are much bigger than they are here, so maybe they look different

Tiger. But it's common to use "pike" as a general label for all the fish in the same genus (Esox), and "Northern Pike" when talking specifically about Esox lucius.

The DOW as far as I know have not stoked tigers in lakes that have pike... Also they have signs (or should) on the lakes that have tigers in them, with a picture of a tiger on them and the minimum legnth requirements.

I'd never do that. I can tell the difference. But its apparent that not everyone does. Its been brought up before, but its a shame that people fish without doing their reserch. You need to know what your catching, how many you can keep .. and so on. Ignorance is no excuse.
