This past weekend off Turtle Creek when I went to clean the walleyes I noticed one (21") that had what looked like a ring around it's entire body just behind it's gills. It looked as if someone took a razor knife and sliced all around the fish. As I investigated I found that the fish had been caught in and escaped from a gill net. It's flesh had actually started to grow around the mono material. I had never seen this before and thought it was very interesting. I cannot even venture to guess how this fish got loose from the gill net but still had the gill net loop around it's body...??
