Walleye Parasite ???

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

We got some Erie eyes this past weekend that had small (1/8" - 1/2"),  whiteish/clear, wormlike (or leechlike) parasites attached to both sides of the tail, and behind each pectoral and pelvic fins..... The fish appeared healthy otherwise, and the flesh was normal. Some of the fish had as many as 100 of these hitchhikers............Any Ideas on what they were?

We did Erie also yesterday, but luckily none of our fish had what you described.
