Caught this little bugger http://pierandsurf.com/photopost/data/500/thumbs/150_super_071.jpg at GNP last Monday. Charlotte called it a deformed baby and that was the only reason I caught it:rolleyes:. I called it a stressed juvenile that had to fight it's way thru all the non eating fish to allow me to catch it. Released and swam away as happy as you can be with half it's face missing and the other half suffrering from elephantitis.

I'm surprised he was still kicking! That's a pretty serious chunk taken out of that little stripers gill plate. Looks like he had a bad experience with a gill net or something.

Caught one tonight that when I was reeling him in he didn't fight just was going round and round in circles. Found out why when I pulled him up, he was missing the top half of his tail. Looked like it was a birth defect as there was no scarring.
