You may want to post this in the main forum under the General Discussion section, you may get more answers. I haven't seen those worms in sunfish however I've seen little white worms in the meat of some perch during the summer months. I've been told that they are harmless once you cook the meat but I've have a general rule that I live by the prevents me from eating anything that is infested with worms. :) So I haven't tried it personally.

Understand from a conversation with DNR long ago that these are parasites from Ducks. They are harmless to human consumption as long as you don't try to use as sushi. Cook thoroughly and enjoy.
