Does this fish have cancer or something?

No I think it's a cross between a Kokonee and a Hump Back Whale ;D ;D ;D Just kidding but I bet the DFG would like to do an autopsy ;) Did you cut that "bad boy" open? Tell us more please 8) It's so ugly that it looks like a great "Photo Shop" project.

I pulled this pic online from here:

As a semi-pro Photoshop user myself, and judging from the edges of the fish, I don't think this picture has been doctored. The color pattern of the fish is a bit odd to me but then again I have not seen enough salmons.

That's a pink salmon or "humpy". Only the males get backs like that. The shot isn't doctored. I've seen literally miles of pinks in AK that look like that one. Actually, he looks better than most. They generally turn brown and grow fungus once they hit the streams.

I also at first glance thought it was a pink . But then I saw that it has no spots on its back which then made me think it was a red . But then again i dont think the reds hump get's quite that big.
But when you go to that sight it says its a world record Humpy ;D

I'm shocked a female salmon will want to mate with a male that has transformed into that. Think about the human-equivalent scenario.....

You guys pulling my leg or what. You've all seen that picture before. It's used in the add for Dick Nite lures. Supposedly a world record.
