I checked further into the situation with Bluegills after my last post. It seems this can effect game fish in general and it is a common problem. The fish normally heal on their own. The next section is a general overview I found......
Many game fish affected with red sore disease will recover without treatment. Fish heal very quickly, and sores will disappear rapidly once the recovery process has begun. Fish that have sores are still acceptable for human consumption as long as the damaged area is removed when the fish is cleaned and the meat is thoroughly cooked.
I am glad to report it would appear this is not a major problem. (But I'm not eatin' the ones with the sores! )Everyone enjoy the Memorial Day weekend with all the activities our association is offering. This is truly a great place to live!
