Sea Lamprey?

4 posts in this topic

I have been fishing LOW for 35+ years. Last Friday (Dec 14) I was fishing in 25' off of Pine Island and caught my first Sea Lamprey. It was attached to a 14" Sauger and was 12" long. Has anyone else been seeing Lamprey attached to fish they have been reeling in?

Wow surprised you have'nt run across these little buggers sooner. I remember them back in the 70's... Nasty little buggers are'nt they!!! They're not Sea Lamprey but a fairly common native Lamprey. Nice BIG one you got too!

I had 2 hanging onto my 14 pound pike last year.

See quite a few on pike & sturgeon but not many on eyes & sauger. They give me the shivers & I give them the knife!

You should have weighed and measured that one. Could be a record.
