Cool, It looked totally healthy so I didn't think anything was wrong but very strange... Do they do that when they hit a certain size ..or is it some do it some don't?? Thanks again for your replies..

That fish had the ole syndrome of its eyes bigger than its stomach. It saw all the available food before the winter cold sets in and got excited smile

That's how they look when they've seen it all.

I've seen it a few times and they were always fish over 8 pounds. I think they are simply old fish. Maybe native genes. Never saw a 5 pounder look that way.

I've seen that quite often, not sure what causes it, but seems common.

I've read, somewhere, that a virus causes the "bug eyed" look....
