Beaver Lake question

705 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Finfollower
I was up and the first one on the lake this morning! caught and released about 6 fish before work. The only one that was large enough to keep looked like its mouth had sores on it and a large cyst close to its tail.

I have noticed on several occassions that some of the fish I have caught have lumps on them that look like a cyst. Has anyone else noticed this or have any idea what it is?

After some research today I am under the impression this has to do with the poor handling of the fish before they are released. I was hoping that it wasn't because of the water. Sorry if that was too much of a newbie questions for everyone here. I'm still on the low end of the learning curve after just starting.
