I would pass on eating a chub in the first place

But I've eaten many a gill or perch with the black spot parasite. As long as you're not serving up sushi, you will be okay.

joesaliga The black spots are most likely caused by parasites. "The grubs that cause black spot are actually
white, but they cause infected fish to lay down a black pigment around each encysted worm."

"Black spot is not a parasite of man, and infected fish can be safely eaten."

This quoted information is from Midwest Outdoor (August 1986), p. 90.

I personally would pass on eating the fish.

Used to use these for Northern Pike bait when I was a kid. Caught them in streams under bridges.

ja-knee-sea Chub... Larger sized ones are usually smoked and picked at with Ritz crackers... Delicious... Next time you go to a grocery store with a fish counter, look at smoked chubs..

mikeyd Lake chub. Catch them a lot ice fishing in the harbors.

habeebtc The pink coloring looks like some of the Chub I catch in the creek by me. Eventually decided they were a species of Chub called a "Fallfish". Could be a hybrid of that as well, but the pink coloring is a hallmark of that kind of chub.

Kazik Almost looks like a juvenile Chub Sucker, but the mouth doesn't look like it protrudes downward enough.

it may a hybrid ?

I caught this fish on the canal near the lake michigan.

I can catch them legally , as live bait ? (catfish, walleye)

FishArt Good question! Almost looks like a juvenile Rainbow, but the scales are too big to be a trout. If I were to guess, I'd say it's some type of Shiner. Almost looks like a juvenile Chub Sucker, but the mouth doesn't look like it protrudes downward enough. Juvenile fish are sometimes very tough to identify! This is one for the biologists!
