Default Bass caught in water runnoff pond in DG..second one deformed

Purely C&R (forgot that **** camera again). Went out Sunday PM after rain before dusk, using my blue tube jig and 4 lb test got a nice bass (biggest one I ever caught). It was huge, at least 4lbs+.

Anyway this was the second big bass out of this pond that had a deformed mouth. It had an extended lower jaw, with the top jaw barely touching the bottom one. Looked kinda freaky.

He hit the jig with a ton of bricks and peeled justa bout all of my 4lb test. So he was spunky.

I am wondering whether that has something to do with the environment or chemicals or something. As I said this was the second large bass caught with this type of deformity.
Drive it like you stole it!
Bass is for guys that cant catch walleyes.

someone may have caught it when it was little and was a little rough handling it...

I usually fish smaller ponds too and it wouldnt shock me at all if this isnt the same bass . Ive done it in the same day where a 3+lb fish snapped me off in weeds or whatever and hours later caught the same fish with the hook still in its jaw , plastic and all still attached. I would worry more if I saw it in greater numbers and smaller fish. jmho
