    Anyone ever catch a whisker fish that had a red eye? This guy went 10# and hit a palm sized perch on a weightless carolina rig and EC circle hook. He hit it like a beast and put the fish taco on my 7'. His belly was full of 3" perch.[​IMG]

    I know that ruptured blood vesals cause the eye to go red humans, but a fish i am not sure. It could of been a defect or accident that happened to it as a fry. Not sure though I have caught several species of fish with that.

    I have caught several with red eyes. That one was a fatty. Good catch.

    We've got a pond thats full of them. Love those albinos but I only fish them at night Cause there eyes are very sensitive to the light.​

    I have seen it before but only once several years ago I caught a channel with red eyes. Not sure what causes it, but makes fore a mean looking fish!

    Looks like the result of an injury to me.
