Bay Variety

Type: Chesapeake
Region: Mid Bay
Location: Chesapeake Bay

Hit the bay last Friday and couldn't have asked for better conditions. Blues were hitting left and right. No real size to them but tons of fun on the light tackle. Caught a couple rocks and got a great fight out of a cownose ray. All were caught on a white bucktail. As always catch and release.

Bass with Lesions

Type: Freshwater
Region: Southern
Location: Pike Branch

I put the waders on and was walking the shores of some new waters and hooked into a variety of fish. Got a little concerned when all the bass I caught, total of 2, had lesions. Is this the LMBV as stated in the annual Black Bass Review? Per Google maps the location looks to be called Pike Branch a runoff of Cameron Run. Always catch and release.

DNR Response: Lesions aren't caused by LMBV. But, lesions are pretty common during summer. During summer, handling stress or bird strikes or swimming into things in the water can all lead to small sores that develop in the skin. The sores can become infected by bacteria, especially during summer and cause more severe lesions.

Sometimes, we've collected fish with lesions and LMBV, but the two aren't linked. If a fish develops disease from LMBV, then you'd likely see it swimming haphazardly at the surface of the water and its gas bladder would be infected. Most of the time, fish with LMBV do not develop the disease. Instead, they're just carriers and look as healthy as every other fish out there. On occasion, though, when water quality is bad or handling stress is severe, then disease can develop from LMBV.

Loaded up the Jon boat and ignored the weather reports. We were able to dodge the major storm cells and when it did rain we just posted up under some docks. Hooked into a total of 4 LMB. Water was clear and the tug was strong. As always catch and release.
