PLATTSBURG, N.Y, (NBC News) — An average day on the lake turned into a memorable moment for an angler in New York.
Debbie Geddes tells WPTZ she was fishing with her husband when she reeled in a fish with two mouths.
She released the fish, but took a few pictures before she did. The photos went viral after a coworker shared them on Facebook.
“I’ve had messages from all over the world, like people asking about this fish and it seems like everybody’s got an opinion on what is the cause of this fish having two mouths,” the coworker, Adam Facteau said.
There is no definitive answer but plenty of interesting theories including an injury from a swalloed hook or the fish being offspring of Lake Champlain’s famed lake monster, Champy.
“Good luck,” Geddes said when asked about advice for other anglers looking to find a two-mouthed catch.
