    I was fishing at my aunt and uncles pond last week and I caught this bluegill with some kind of growth on it's back. I've seen a couple other bluegills with what looks like blisters on their sides as well, this one was the worst. I was thinking maybe it's some kind of parasite? None of the other fish in the pond are like this, just the bluegills. Sorry for the blurry pics.

    I would send those pics to a wildlife biologist. I would definitely find out whats occurring in the lake.
