Those are some pretty cool looking fish! -even with the deformities.
There was an article with many pics last year in Musky Hunter about muskies with deformities.
*Years back, MuskieJim caught his first "casting" fish from the back of my boat and it was deformed. We were fishing Lake Chautauqua and the fish had a huge hump/bend in its back! Maybe he can muster up a picture of it for everyone to see.
