I don't fish Fork a lot, but it seems like almost every time I do, I catch a crappie with a spinal abnormality. Monday I caught 14 and three of them had a severe curve in the latter third of their spine. Otherwise, they looked perfectly healthy and fat, but shorter than they should have been. Was wondering if anyone else has seen this. Genetic? Injury from youth? Just wondering. See Pic below.

Also, all fish were caught in 2' or less in the weeds and 4 of them were 2lbs. +.

When in doubt, set the hook

I put little back braces on them. But, they made me take them off at the last CAT tournament weigh in.

probably survived a cormorant attack. I see a lot of sandbass like that.
