Sick Carp?

Recommended Posts

I landed a small Common carp last night and it was covered in half dollar sized sores. They were all over the animal. Is this some kind of a normal molt, or a disease of some kind? Aside from the sores the fins were in excellent condition and the fish seemed to put up a decent fight for its size. Based on the big boillie it ate I’d assume it is still eating too.

Thanks,

Jon

Looked almost like blisters, with a whitish mold like color to them. It is the only fish I've ever released and wondered if I might not be better off digging a hole and planting it. I hope I did not re-release a plage into the lake.
