    We caught a small blue cat, about 3# or so this morning on one of our jugs. (on shad)
    He had a big hump on the right side of his back just behind the gills about 1/2". Looked like he had a golf ball under the skin! !
    After the autopsy we found that this fish had a hole about the size of a pencil lead that went from his air bladder, thru part of his back bone and this huge hump was where his muscles and skin had stretched over time to be a bigger part of his air bladder.
    Hunchback Cat of Oolagah Lake! !

    ODD!
