white parasites

Has anyone ever seen the small white parasite/worm that infests mainly perch. They are generally located in the meat from the dorsal fin back to the tail. But they can be in all parts of fish. If I clean a fish that have them it gets tossed. I have also seen them in walleyes from a few northern MN lakes this year. Just wondering what others opinions are. Not very appetizing.

Those nasty little grubs occur in alot of fish, sometimes they cluster around the fins and tail area and you can see them from the outside. Other times you don't know they are there until you clean the fish...yuk!

Rock Bass always have them, Sunnies and Perch have them from certain areas, I've seen them on White fish, on smaller Walleyes and Pike, but I have never encountered them on Crappies? I don't mess with fish that are heavily infested...if I see one or two on a fillet, I'll pop them out with the tip of the knife, if more then that, they become cat food, or fertilizer!

I really don't get many with grubs, over the years I have learned what to look for on the outside of the fish and also areas that give up alot of wormy fish and I don't fish there!

      No idea who that is.  Had to look it up though.  Born in 1911 and died in 1975.  That explains why I've never heard of him.

      Fished Tuesday-Thursday.  Caught a lot of 9-12 inch walleyes.  The only walleyes I caught over 12 inches were two 13 inchers and the pictured 22 inch.  Don't know where the quality eaters went.  Best action was 11am-4pm.  The walleyes were stuck on the bottom so I set my bobber so the minnow could just reach the bottom.  Then I would occasionally raise it up to entice them to bite.  Got numerous bites as I was setting the depth.  Neither the Y-store nor Vermilion Fuel & Food had rainbows so I settled on pike suckers and chubs.  Didn't catch a walleye on pike suckers the first morning so I just stuck with the chubs the rest of the trip.   Good luck fishing and enjoy the lake.

      Was up Tuesday-Thursday.  Travel by snowmobile was much better than 2 weeks ago, but still fairly bumpy.  Didn't hit any slush, but I didn't travel much off road.   There is only one road plowed out from McKinley Park now.  It heads toward the first group of fish houses to the right then turns toward Birch Island by that village.  This road was very wide and well cleared before last nights light snow.  Don't know if the wind caused much drifting with this snow.  The good road goes to just before the west end of Birch Island, then there is a small plowed road that goes behind the north side.  The slush spot from 2 weeks ago has frozen and the road is now straightened out there.  There are numerous small spur roads plowed off of the main road.  A few spurs about half way out hit some heavy slush, so that is still a concern if going off-road.   Good luck if you venture out, and be careful and courteous.  Enjoy the lake.

      Well yes, as a matter of fact I do. 🙂   Planning on heading out this afternoon to play in the arctic blast for the weekend.

      I don't think there is such a thing as cheap and sturdy. For unbreakable you may have to get away from plastics or fish on claim days. ☺️

      Ballzout mounts are extremely sturdy.  They aren't cheap though.
