I'm not for sure but it may be just the picture. I've taken a few pictures where the bass isn't really ready to give up and then attempts to shake loose one last time. My guess is perfect timing/angle with that attempt. :wink3:

Nope, it wasn't just the picture. I was holding it straight down. It had a bad hump back and a crooked tail. It had obviously had a hard life. I felt so bad for the crooked fish I took all of five seconds to snap the pic and release it.

I think he's just been doing too many crunches! 

I'm not sure what causes that to happen, but I've caught a few that have had similar issues. I haven't seen any that extreme, but it does happen.

That is likely a skeletal malformation called lordosis that I believe occurs when they are still juveniles. Still, the bass has managed to feed and grow into an adult.

There once was a crooked man who caught a crooked bass...

You forgot that he had to walk a crooked mile first.

Incredible!  A species of bass that has evolved a human defense mechanism!  His appearance ensure he will never be cooked.

I've caught a few Quasimoto bass with a hump, but never a question mark belly like that. Very interesting.

I once catched an offset lmb Top view showed a distinct offset of almost 3/4" on a 14"`er.

T22 that fish might show  as circle on the df

Whatever it was....he just did what he needed to to survive.

not like a lot of humans.....whining and moaning about the unfairness of the world and how we should be given special consideration or free stuff.
