Hey TR it doesn't get any better than that. A wife that loves to fish & will even handle what she catches. The only thing mine will fish for comes out of a mall store. But thats okay I love her anyway because she has no problem of me getting out of her hair to go fishing.

Nice fish.... TR I can't believe you put her in the back of the boat;), just kidding. :lol:. She might be the 1st one to pull a 10+ out of your place.

at first i thought it was a coincidence but how it reocurrs so often on them especially the big ones i really dont know man, we need to keep an eye on it and look around for what it could be.

I've seen this on LMB caught in TX. Perhaps a result of being caught - at some point coming in contact with the line.... Do you see this more during the spawn or pre-spawn? Maybe that has something to do with it...

from what i read on that website it says it's most noticable in the spring/fall and that is when i see it. and then in the fall i see it too

this is the last paragraph from that website "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 noticed those sores last year too. Some of the fish have algae growing on the sores and it seems like most of the fish I've seen with the sores have been caught out of the north end of the pond. BTW, nice fish!!! Nothing like a good time fishing with the wife. :)

Ryan808 on the forums made it, was very reasonably priced, less than i'd have had to pay for one of those crappy shakespear pink ones
