Can I assume the same type of disorder that causes cleft palate's in humans causes this?

Did this fish look healthy or was it pretty skinny?

Yeah all three looked really healthy, two were the exact same size and the one was smaller but otherwise really healthy. It would be really hard believe that braid or fireline could do the EXACT same damage on three different fish, not to mention it probably would of killed them. All in all its really wierd though!

Cyberfish your LM looked exactly like my smallie. Creepy!!!

Have your every caught them like that before? It might be worth your time to contact UM or DNR see if they would like to do a study or if they know about it. I'm not sure I would be interested in eating anything that Ugly.

LOL! "You got fried shrimp, sauteed shrimp, shrimp kabobs,......"

Or when Lieutenant Dan tells Bubba to "Better watch that lip, you'll get it got on a trip wire". Hilarious.

That fish makes me think of a song." Give me back my upper lip, give me my lip." I think it could be a commercial.
