While fishing the opener on New Yearís Day, one of the guys in our hut caught this fish with a large growth on its long with another I didnít get a picture of. Fishing in early fall with another buddy and he caught one with a similar growth on the head. Not sure what it is and donít know if itís a problem for the lake but have never seen it before. Does anybody know what it is?

HOPE THIS ISN'T SOMETHING WRECKING THE FISH OR SPREADING.
DON'T THINK I WOULD EAT ONE WITH A GROWTH LIKE THAT ON IT.
ANYONE ELSE????

Looks like a viral infection called Lymphocystis. Not transmisable to people
