Smallie With Cancerous Tumor Puts Susquehanna Water Quality In Question

The Susquehanna River has a long-standing reputation as one of the finest smallmouth fisheries in the East. In fact, I know a lot of anglers that call it the best moving-water bronzeback fishery in the U.S. But with all things fishing, it depends on who you talk to. Check out this news clip from Pix11.com. This bass with a giant tumor on its face was caught in the Susky last November, and it has just recently been confirmed that it's a cancerous growth. The anglers interviewed don't seem too upset about it. They actually joke that sights like this are relatively normal because the water quality is so poor. As for what it means, no one can say. Fracking fluid, perhaps? It could also just be a freak occurence that means very little. Your thoughts?
