Default New crappie pickerel hybrid!

I saw this on another forum and thought yal might like to see this.
Its a steril hybrid between a pickerel and a crappie. At least they don't have a pickerel's teeth!

I don't buy it, I'll bet that's a distorted photo. (pretty convincing though)

I agree! The pictures of the pickerel that I seen before (Looks like a gar fish) and crappie are no where close to looking like the 2 could be mixed like that.

I honestly never thought it might have been a fake. The metal and piece of wood under the fish don't seem distorted. But honestly if this is fake, I didn't know about it.

HAHA! Nice!

I don't think they'd even have to use photoshop. Just take a photo and stretch it vertically, then crop it to normal photo proportions.

i'm going to go out on a limb and say that it's not a p-shop. i think the formation of the patterns and the fact that the eyes are still round supports an actual photo. call me crazy.
