We’ve all caught something during our fishing careers that was a little odd.

I once caught an albino channel catfish and have several times caught redfish that looked as if they had been cut up by a butcher knife. Apparently it was some sort of disease and it certainly left me scratching my head.

What if you caught something that started puffing up like a balloon when you caught it?

That happens occasionally on the Texas coast and it did to Amber Deranger recently when she caught a smooth puffer fish. Kind of different. Kind of cool.

What is the strangest fish you have ever caught?
