Bass Stuck In Bigger Bass's Mouth
Occurred on September 16, 2023 / Hyco Lake, North Carolina, USA
Info from Licensor: "I was fishing a kayak bass fishing tournament with the local fishing club, Central Carolina Kayak Fishing, at Hyco Lake in North Carolina. I noticed something floating in the water. That's when I found two largemouth bass that were struggling to survive. The bigger of the two bass had the smaller fish fully embedded in its mouth where it was stuck leaving them both helpless. I worked to free the smaller bass from the mouth of the larger bass. Once freed, I tried to revive both bass by holding them in the water and letting the water flow over their gills. After a few moments, the smaller fish started swimming strongly, and the larger fish was swimming, belly down, but wasn't swimming down in the water. The smaller fish was likely to survive but the bigger fish was having a harder time."
