Wow whats up with that fish? I don't think I would have even touched it!!! Hope you just cut the line or better yet pulled it out and let it die so it won't spread what ever it got to more fish??? I didn't know they had this on NE? I like your pictures How did you get the underwater one? Very cool

hey Pablo,

I have never senn this before..

and well I didn't touch it , looked worse in person-- I used foceps to extract the hook and it swam away.....

as for the underwater shot ---I have a underwater camera....once they post my report from yesterday.
--you can see more picts...as well as shots from later last year when I got the camera.

Say what's up with your last post....where's the bashing coming from.....please post in your usual manner.....it makes a huge difference to the quaulity of this site....forget what others say.

Got a response from the DEC about this fish:

Dear Paul,

The fish in the photographs is infected with a virus called lymphocystis. It is a relatively common condition in the Spring, and during winter in areas where fish congregate (i.e., power plant outfalls), particularly among smaller fish. Essentially, the fish is fighting the virus and what you see are white cells on the surface of the skin. Since there is a possibility of recovery our advice is to release the fish. Thanks for the information.

Sincerely, Vic Vecchio
