I don't think lamprey. Look at the marks on the fish in the first pic. Marks are symmetrical on both sides of the fish

Those are lamprey marks. I have seen thousands on the fishing boats.

This was symmetrical, both sides of the fish.

Lamprey are round , no? Never seen a single lamprey in 25 years of fishing here

Yes, the big ones go back. We never get them below 22" night Trolling. The limit is one fish over 22 per person.

The struggle is finding a nice 23".

We took home a 23 and a 24 tonight. Nothing over 25 gets kept. When the fish move in thick, lots in the 28-32" class.

Not all the injuries or marks look the same so there may be multiple factors, strange that it is every fish you caught however. Nice walleyes. Would large predators like Great Lakes muskies be moving in with the schools of eyes?

Many. Caught lots of musky this year. Usually their teeth pattern is more consistent though.

I'm counting on this fact this fall.


Although I've come close, I gotta break 50" this year!

Nice fish. Lamprey for the most part hit Salmon and Lake Trout in neck of Lake Huron. Put will attach to most fish. Hutchy when do the big ones start running?

Should be a few around now, buy more toward the end of Oct

Haven't seen any lamprey on Lake trout here.

Saw one on a musky on nipissing. That was odd.
