It was a great battle. He really gave a grand accounting of himself, and deserved his release.

This happens alot of times due to bad genetics... technically. In the aquarium trade it is a "fairly" common thing if you know what to look for and are looking for fish. A lot of rare aquarium fish can be found that look like that and are labeled as "short bodied" mainly because it can shorten a body length by up to a third. Generally this happens mid spine so it doesn't look like that alwasy but there is alwasy the possibility that the spine will make that severe of a turn more towards the tail similar to the bass you caught...

Nice fish btw!

I have seen this in trout and it is a form of piscatorial scoliosis. Genetics, toxic contaminates, heavy metal leeching a bi product of acid rain, the causes vary but I think that is what afflicts your bass.

Nice fish,

Ard
