    My kids were cracking up when they pulled this thing out of the water. Looked like a cross between a rainbow trout and a bluegill. Caught in Utah.

    Wow never seen one like that before. Really does look like a cross between the species you mentioned.

    HAHAHA, that fish is funny looking for sure. I had a trout with a 45 degree bend half way down the body. Released it and it swam away fine, just a little crooked. They must be some tough little fish.

    Before everyone gets upset, the dumb kids part is a joke. Mike is old, I guess he hasn’t learned it’s physically challenged yet.

    This fish is straight rainbow trout markings. Google search doesn’t show any white bass with rainbow trout markings. Could be wrong.

    Looks like short spine syndrome like happens in some rare cases to dogs. I guess fish can get it too maybe?
