    Default Bumps on the silvers?

    Is it just me or am I seeing more and more silvers with them bumps on them?
    Does any body know what those bumps are.
    I know last season I released 20-25 silvers with them bumps on them.
    Mostly in the litte sue.
    You proably could eat them and it would be ok. I am just picky.
    I was just thinking about that.

    I've seen this in the south central area as well, and there does seem to be an incline of bumped silvers that I have been catching. I've been told it's some kind of infection or virus, and I have also heard it's a sign of high worm count. I cannot confirm either. I'd love to hear the scientific explanation.

    The answer is buried somewhere in the second page of that thread.
