I doubt this is columnaris. Columnaris is bacterial but manifests itself as a fuzzy appearance. It is often mistaken for fish fungus. It tends to trap algae, etc making it look a bit greyish to greenish. This is something different, almost a clearing of the opercular cover and scales so you can see thru the scales into the skull and gill cover. There is a professor at the University of Kentucky that specializes in freshwater fish diseases. They even teach a course there on the subject. Try sending the photos to Dr. Robert Durborow (robert.durborow@kysu.edu). He can probably ID it and tell you whether it is bad to eat or whatever. He is in the KSU's division of Agricultural sciences.

Fished Saturday evening. Pretty windy but calmed down at dark. Managed to catch crappies once again. Let 18in channel go and a short eye. Can't wait for first ice.

Thanks for the input guys. I did a search on DNR website and sent an inquiry. They forwarded info to Dodge County Fisheries Biologist. I have sent them the pictures and waiting to see what they have to say. I will post their response when received.

I've only seen it on the crappie. But I've seen it the last few years. Hope it's due to temp. Change? Got out last night for 9 hours and fished from shore and ended up with 8 crappie and 2 perch. None of the crappie had the " growth". Very slow right lines and good luck. Oh yeah I missed probably a dozen fish also. Puke

It happens during quick temperature changes. Our perch were fine last month.

What is the cause of this? Is it a problem for all fish or just certain species? Does it eventually clear up? Is it due to a food source or just a rare thing? Wondering

Looks like this is columnaris disease. It is a bacterial infection. From what I've read, they are still ok to eat if cooked fully but may or may not have a funny taste. There are very few fish diseases that are transferred to humans. Hope this helps.

This is my first post, but was concerned about the condition of the fish caught on Beaver Wed, Nov 4th. Managed to catch 16 crappie, 7 of which looked diseased. Can anybody comment on what this is or is there a number to the DNR that might help...?

Just a heads up. All the piers have been pulled everywhere on the lake. Not a nice surprise when they pull them without notice and while you are on the water. Seems like the perch bite is about over.
