Dropped the wife off at the casino and headed to Wapato to try for a few fish & maybe some crawfish. My golfing friend said there were some huge crawfish in the lake. Never got a one with 3 pots out but did really well on the fishing. Got my limit in a little over an hour. Really nice fish in the 14'' to 16'' range but one was covered in some kind of parasite. I guess I'll use him for bait or fertilizer. Not too appetizing to look at! Does anyone know if this lake has a problem with parasites & whether the fish are good to eat. Did meet one other group coming out & they had their limit & gave me directions to the "hot" spot.

Not sure about Wapato, but nearby Antilon sure is full of parasites. No sushi zones all. The fish cook safely if thoroughly cooked, but there is that nagging background idea.
