These are mostly on my catfish, I noticed them last year when the pond had heavier vegetation
In the warmer months, but now even in the colder temps. Should I be worried or is there anything I need to do about them? Not ok all the catfish but most of them.

Can’t figure out how to post a pic on here from a cell phone. Basically small green leeches about
1/4” long and green , along the bottom of catfish’s mouths.

I don't know any thing about leeches. Lusk has a Wednesday evening Facebook program. He accepts questions.

It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Without a sense of urgency, Nothing ever gets done.

Boy, if I say "sic em", you'd better look for something to bite. Sam Shelley Rancher and Farmer Muleshoe Texas 1892-1985 RIP
