Hello guys I have been looking at your pictures I’m just wondering if you think this is a tiger ?

Just got back from our trip up north. We fished in the snow, sleet, and wind. Walleyes were deep on the Eagle River Chain in very tight areas. We used minnows and crawlers on the smallest jigs we could maintain bottom contact with. Bites were very light almost as if it felt like a weed. Wind was strong everyday making boat control difficult. Thee were very few boats out on the lakes we fished.

Starting with yesterday.
This single client enjoyed a snowy day boating Walleye. No giving up in this boat. 3 Day event.
This client is no stranger to the elements of Northern Wisconsin, as his smile says it all.
All fish were on minnows and slip bobbers over a 35 ft deep man made brush piles on a clear water lake.
These fish were hammering the bait, no guessing, the bobber went straight down. Despite the BRUTAL WEATHER CONDITIONS this client prevailed in a few good Walleye.
As always, stay positive, think clearly, do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.
I caught a comparable tiger a few years ago on the Eagle River Chain. She was also just a bit over 45 inches, with a 21 inch girth. I recently had a replica made of her by Fittante. This replica is next to another replica from Fittante of a 52.5 inch clear musky caught in Ontario. They look fantastic next to each other.
You have a great photograph of your fish, such that Fittante or Lax could do a great job of making a replica for you.
Something to ponder over, as 45+ inch tigers don't come along very often!
