I took a 20lb king last month like that. It was nice and fat, and it had one of my hooks in each mouth. The second mouth was about 3 x 2 inches. Each "mouth" had teeth.

I assume it got injured by a hook that ripped its throat open when it was a skippy and healed up into the 2-mouth variety. I could be wrong as I was in 100 feet of water in front of the Nine-Mile nuke plant.

It had 2 eyes and 1 bung but, it did seem to flop around smartly when I whistled "Dueling Bangoes". "Looks kind-a like a hog".

This IS really weird! Looks like nicely healed injuries from some close encounters of the third (human) kind....Nicely because the fish seem to have survived and lived on. Hope it is not some "born with it ", Thalidomide baby (anybody remember that?) type thing.....

We saw a lot of these in champlain, never heard any definitive answer on cause, my best guesses would be 1) previous hook injury 2) inherited genetic deformity, they even had a name for em but I can't remember it

Repeat after me - "I will not test for live wires by putting them in my mouth".
