Have you ever seen a King like this? Two mouths!

Recommended Posts

Out of Fairhaven in deep water. Took a white/green dot skinny with white/green fly on 300' copper.

Fish has a second lower jaw w/teeth! Looks like second gill plate partially grew in.

There was a hole between the two jaws inside the mouth(s)

Fly was in upper jaw and hook actually was stuck in the upper part of the lower. I cut the leader so I didnt have to try and push hook the through the hole and out the upper mouth.

Anybody ever seen one like it?

I was gonna keep it but it was kicking real strong so I released it.IMG_1180.thumb.JPG.83685acdf406c49cbfdfa84d7e556177.JPG

I think birth defect. Wasn't just a hole from an injury, lower jaw had teeth & second gill plate was partially grown

I caught one like that about 20 years ago. It took a silver bullet J-plug and the plug was hanging out of the hole in the lower jaw. Looked identical to that one,

Total Chaos

I’d be scared to ever touch that. Looks like a birth defect to me.

I think somebody else got a king iike yours within the last 4-5 years.  I am pretty certain I saw one on this site before.   Of course my memory isn’t what it once was but maybe somebody else will remember it too.   Regardless, real nice pics and awesome u put it back for someone else to potentially get the same thrill.

Does that count as 1 or 2 fish?

A quick check shows this birth defect is not that crazy unheard of with fish. See the you tube vid of the fish with two mouths and 4 eyes....only 6 seconds long but really neat!   :thinking:

I definitely remember seeing another like this one on this site. 2 to 3 years ago. I am 100% sure.

I hook a bunch of kings on my big 6” spoons under the chin as they like to roll on those big baits. Somehow they get all three hooks buried. It usually involvolves quick surgery with a fillet knife to get the hooks coming out.

That one almost looks like his lower jaw was split apart?

I am not sure its from an injury . 2 separate jaws for sure, both containing teeth, Also if you look at the gill plate it looks like a second one starting to grow in. But I am no expert, who knows

I caught a rainbow in a stocked Pa. trout stream just like that.

A few years back we caught a laker in Cayuga with an almost, identical mutation. We called it "The two-faced fish".

We had a king with a real severe overbite on Friday.

I have caught many Lakers over the years with severe over bites. This one has it but not nearly as bad as some I have seen over the years.
