I defer to Kenny on that [Snipe] - he's moved a ton of fish, and if it works for him historically, I'd bank his advice. If the salt bath works to address this infection it's certainly a much quicker process than medicated feed approach.

It won't hurt at all.. It will only help with any parasite or fungus.
Anytime you handle fish in number, this is good practice.
FYI, although a different species we do this to EVERY Walleye we strip or milk in mid 40's because we purposely remove (Dry) the slime/water from each fish which exposes areas extremely prone to infection/fungus, which is what happens every time you handle a fish.
Careful handling is always good practice, this is more insurance and addresses other issues such as we've mentioned above that are already present.
