Last night my friend and I caught a huge channel cal that went at least 30" out of the Greenville creek. Sorry, didn't have a scale and couldn't get the weight, but it was a brute. Upon looking at it, we saw that it had large black spot all over it body, both belly fins were completely black, as well as its mouth, inside and out. It also had a small growth inside its mouth (about the size of a swelled tick). We eventually let it go because we weren't sure if t was safe. Any ideas if it is diseased or what? I put a picture below. Take a look and let me know what you think.
