Thanks for the "shout out"!
However, it is hard to say without pictures to narrow it down.
Sores are not uncommon when the environment is causing stress on the fish. What causes the sores is a totally different cause.
So, sorry, I don't have anything to really say.
I think this means that some of you need to go fishing back out at Prewitt and collect some photos for me. :)
I need this information for each fish collected via hook and line. Total length (tip of nose to end of tail), species, and the following pictures: a whole fish picture, then a closeup of the sores, each with a ruler. Pictures need to clear and can be sent to me via my skipper link. GPS location is great if available.
(Just KIDDING about the sampling and photos)
