Being seeing quite a few fish with curved spines lately at Fork? Genetics, cormorant injury, or something else?

Pisca- scoliosis.

I think it’s caused by a virus. Fork has more than most lakes IMO. Almost always a white crappie.

Definitely something related to Fork and I honestly can remember maybe 5 total outside of Fork that had it

Oh wow, thx for posting that! I never seen that before, but looks like you can’t tell unless you fillet it, and look for it. If you are cleaning a mess of fish you might not even see it.

I have seen spinal curvature in about 1 out of 40-50 crappie at Sam Rayburn over the past 2-3 years. When filleting them, it is harder because of the curvature,


Aren't they all "reaction" bites?

I had one in my take the other day. I just assumed it was an injury of some sort. Interesting about a virus or genetics.

I heard lordosis or scoliosis may be from dietary deficiency or electroshocking?
