It is funny you brought this up, this past weekend we caught 1 carp without and eye and a couple with forked barbel(reference to an earlier wierd carp post). I have seen many carp caught with only 1 eye.

:D:D I know I have 5 other deformed fish pics...

Can't wait to see what oddities I land in 2007 :D

You aren't fishing near a chemical or nuclear plant I hope.

I cant imagine catching a fish with its eye sticking out like a tumor. I had lunch like 12 hours ago and its about to come up just looking at that picture.

If it weren't for the obvious Carp heads on these, I'd say they were Redhorse suckers! I've never seen Carp with red fins!

Andy, I would have kept that poor pop-eyed fish and taken him to a vet! The thing needed amputating! Wonder what caused that . . .

I often see Golden Shiners (like mini-Bream) in our minnow tanks whose spines are stiffly bent into S-curves. I think these deformalities, and that of your fish, are the result of funny genetics. I wonder, though: Do fish get arthritis? :D

Just shows how much carp use their eyes when feeding.
