    Is there anyone out there that has personal experience of fishing for both the sea bass we get around UK shores and the striped sea bass you guys get on the other side of the Atlantic?
    I’ve caught plenty of our UK sea bass, but have never had the chance to try for your stripers.
    What are the differences and similarities in the fishing techniques?
    Is there anything we can learn from each other?

    Google – lesions on striped bass- There are a number of articles that will provide you with the info.
    Good fishing!

    Lesions on Striped Bass are not good for the Bass or you. Last year in Maryland..Baltimore area..there were 5 documented cases of severe bacterial infections associated with those ‘lesions’. Only my boga or net touch Striped Bass now. When fishing from a boat the Bass are never brought aboard.

    I’m very familiar with mycobacteriosis, specifically It’s abundance in Chesapeake Bay but it has been a rare occurrence in our waters. In these photos every fish seems to have external lesions. Which is an advanced form of the infection. I think its time to be concerned.

    Mycobacteriosis is abundant in Chesapeake Bay striped bass,75%+ say The Virginia Institute of Marine Science. In 2010 VIMS released a study showing microbacteriosis is lethal to striped bass. Since a large proportion of the Chesapeake Bay Striped Bass population migrate along the Northern Atlantic Coast it is not a stretch to think they have the bacteria with them. I have seen it in striped bass caught in Montauk waters and believe most would not have a clue what the lesions are. The bacteria is well known in the Chesapeake Bay Region and still fishermen handle infected striped bass and eat them. We should have been concerned a decade or more ago regarding micobacteriosis and other bacteria that are harmful to fish and man.
