    I've seen them on channel cats in the Occoquan Reservoir in 2005. Don't know what they are and can't find the pictures. Deer Hunters pictures look similar, but the sores aren’t as perfuse. Maybe try calling VDGIF fisheries biologist.

    I've caught a few with the bumps like in DH's pics. I don't know what causes it.
