    They are some type of worm. They aren't harmful. The DNR biologist, that I ask about this to said, they require being eaten by fish and pooped out by birds in order to complete thier life cycle. Normal cooking kills them. We have them in our Bluegill and Crappie up here in MI.

      Have not seen them in the bass that I have caught but Wallofsam sounds like he knows what he is talking about.
