caught some really nice crappie yesterday that had bloody sores all over them

looked like they had been bitten by an alligator or something anyone else see that

on any fish.

the fish fed all night under that full moon and were on fire early morning a fish on nearly

every drop till about 9 am then it tapered off to nothing by 10:30 or so. 9 feet down.

pink/ truse it is a hot one out there the umbrella helps a lot but still kept a cool rag

from the ice chest around my neck to keep cool all day.

I have seen some with that fin fungus but they were not bloody.....
I agree the early morning bite was a lot better than after the sun got up but I did catch feesh till the end of the tourney...
I was battling that direct sunlight & had to depend on my clothing, buff & hat as I forgot my umbrella in the bed of my truck.....
It's brutal on the lake without some shade this time of year ....y'all be careful out yonder.....

I have noticed that fin fungus quite often on lake conroe crappie but not to

much on lake houston.

wonder if it came down from conroe with all the rain release from there.

There's a couple piles that you are almost guaranteed to catch a few with that fungus, either that area is contagious or it's the hospital for the sickly....LOL
I had my son cracking up when I told him that the other week....

Caught this little guy late yesterday in East Fork near BJ's Marina.
The fungus was on his dorsal fin and on the edge of its tail.
Not a good picture but it definitely looks like a fungus.

From another forum:
Lypphocystis - some additional information.


Life cycle:

The virus spreads from fish to fish through physical contact or water transmission. Lymphocystis infections are usually not fatal to fish, although very severe infections can cause damage to vital organs and possibly death. In addition, secondary bacterial or fungal infections can develop at sites of dislodged growths.


Where is the disease is found?

Although the virus occurs naturally in the environment, infections occur at a much higher rate during cold periods in late winter and early spring.


Is it safe to eat?

This disease is not known to infect humans. However, proper cooking of any freshwater fish is recommended.


How can I prevent the spread?

There is no practical control or treatment for this disease.


Disposal of unused portions:

Dispose of uneaten portions by burying or in household waste. Fish entrails should never be discarded back into the lake.

Every now and again we pick up one here on Conroe. Caught a few channel cats the other day that had teeth bite marks on their sides with skin and some flesh missing. They were very fresh wounds. I'm thinking otters or gar.
