maggy lane

Post by woods »

fished maggy lane friday night with a mate we both had loads of pout and whiting pulling fish in almost every cast. getting bites as soon as baits hit the water. all the fish looked in really bad condition covered in black spots and scales falling off and all of them had worms attached to them. anyone seen this before or know what going on with the fish ? every fish was the same

Hello mate , we have been catching fish like that since late last year from just down river from snaggy alley , but only pout , hasnt seem to effected any other fish , i intend to take more pics of the diseased fish and find out if its a shell fish contamination , were the worms you have witnessed on the fish red ??

pout with disease

Are you sure they were pout with the black spots and not poor cod as they have little black spots and the scales fall off from time to time ??

most of the worms were attached around the gills and both pout and whiting had black spots and worms
