Caught this carp at the rec pond yesterday. No lips and deformed mouth. Has anyone else ever caught a fish like this?

Surprising it survived this long without lips

Wow, I've caught a number of carp, but none like that! I wonder if it's a genetic deformity or maybe caught a few too many times.

Poor little carp, i've not seen one like that before, it's like the front of his mouth is totally gone/deformed, whiskers, and all .. - otherwise, he seems in pretty good shape...!

Poor little guy, I wonder how well he feeds.

He seemed to suck up my corn just fine. And other then his mouth looked healthy and normal. Went back to swim.

Some other pics from the morning. Had lots of fun with multiple doubles. Pretty interesting when its just me and two kids that still need help reeling.
