Looks like a northern pike to me.

Def. a Pike.

Wow, that's pretty unusual. Did you get it just above the bridge on the far side (across & down from the launch area)? The rock looks kinda familiar.

Anyway, nice catch!

Haha that is exactly the spot. and it surprised the hell out of me. Went down there because it looked like a good spot to get some casting room and it appeared to be a nice shelf as well.

Northern pike - and a nice one!
Northerns are rare to non-existent in the lower Susky (I've never seen one down here) but my understanding is they're pretty common up in the North Branch.

As all have said before it is a northern.
Note the distinct spotted patterning. Muskies have washed out stripes. Also muskie fins are reddish in color and lack any markings.
Nice fish

I've never caught a NP in on the NB, but that sure looks like one to me. Nice catch.
