I can handle it. Been eating pepper grub fish my whole life. There is no taste to them and no harm to humans. Just cook as normal.

Black parasites, do you mean spots,like pepper? If so it is from the king fisher (bird), or heron.

The main problem associated with black-spot is the unsightly appearance it may cause. Skinning infected fish will remove most of the black spots. Some may be in the flesh.

The life cycle of the parasite is quite complex. A fish-eating bird (typically a great blue heron or kingfisher) eats an infected fish. The black spot or worms are released and grow to sexual maturity in the bird's intestine. The adult worms pass eggs with the bird's droppings. When the eggs reach water, they hatch into free-swimming organisms which then penetrate snails for further development. Finally, after leaving the snails they burrow into the skin of fish and form a cyst. The fish surrounds the cyst with black pigment that gives the disease its name. If an infected fish is consumed by a bird, the cycle repeats itself.

Disgusting.  CPR them.

Hi,

For those who have recently fished Kentuck, how is the water clarity?  The last time I was on Kentuck was 2 years ago (in August) and there was a green film/slime on the lakes surface that was a challenge cleaning and removing from the boats hull.

Thanks for any info.....

MOON PHASE (4%)
Waning Crescent

CONDITIONS
Partly Sunny

AIR TEMP
21° - 25° F

Fished earlier this week, lots of perch out in deeper water, lots of marginal size fish, managed enough for a meal.  Crappies were still out in deeper water. All fish were hitting live bait and plastics. If traveling by truck I would recommend chains, we were able to be mobile with chains. I pulled out a guy by the landing that was stuck without them.
