Pretty sure this is a northern pike, but the markings on it were very peculiar, more vertical /diagonal than horizontal. I would love some feedback to see what you all think. Sorry the photos aren't the best, pulled it from phone video. If anyone wants the video send me an email to send it to.

Looks like a tiger muskie. The body of water would help.

Upon further reflection, its probably a pike. Cool fish.

Thanks for the verification. Fish came out of Spinney not the mile. I've caught lots of pike here. This is the first one I've seen with the strange pattern.

Tigers have dark stripes on a light background. This fish is a norther pike,

I catch little pike like this with similar markings at Taylor Park fairly often. Don't know if these markings are limited to juveniles though. I've never caught anything over about 18 inches with the broken stripes like that...

Grass carp, without a doubt.

Definitely a northern, fantastic markings! Here's two of the three tigers and granddaughters over the last 5 weeks. Yes of course I'm bragging! Pretty sure I won't get another chance!
