. I have a question on rock bass. Most of the ones I catch have black specs in the meat or skin. It goes away when I cook it. I assume it's ok to eat I usually make fish patties with them. Anyone got some assurances for me??

Hey Croppie42 ,

Welcome to my Fishing Pals. Glad to ha you aboard!

I have always considered rock bass to be a rough fish and have never kept them or eatin' them. Maybe someone else can help you out, eh?

Thanks. I use them for fish patties only . Still I thought they tasted good enough with fixings that I don't waste them. Limit is high and it saves melunchmeat for work.

I have always know rock bass meat to look like that. If it looks like little dinky dark colored veins, i think that is normal. If it is just black specks or spots, then probably not normal.

Those black spots are very common on Rock Bass, Sunfish, Perch, Northerns, and even Bass. Even though these fish have this parasite, which is very common in most lakes, they are safe to eat since the cooking process kills this parasite. So no worries! It's a common question.

Update: I guess I should've read the link 1st. It covered it very well!
