Battle Scar Bass

Have you ever caught a bass that just looks different and wonder..."what happened to this one!?"  I have from time to time caught bass that have strange markings and battle scars on them.  It seems like I used to see it more in Washington State and always assumed it was from Pike and other toothy predators, but I still see it once in a while here in Florida.  What is the cause of this?  Was it a near death experience or just a birth mark?  Who knows, but it's still pretty interesting to see.
