4.0 lb. Landlocked Salmon caught by Ron fishing on Monday November 17, 2008 at 09:08 in Lake Champlain 5.66 km from Essex in Essex County, Vermont (VT), United States North America

This a pic of a nasty 14" Sea Lamprey. A fellow fisherman, Ron, landed a beautiful 4 pound landlocked Champlain Salmon with this lamprey attached.
Unfortunately, this great fishery we have here has it's issue with Sea Lamprey. Vermont and New York are fighting the Lamprey but it's going to be a long battle.

There is a petition going around circulated by LCI to support lamprey treatment. Sign it on line and let your friwends know. Good salmon area

Nice late fall salmon; very ugly lamprey eel.

Not sure how many are in the lake Joe but I think it would be safe to say the lake is over run with them. It's getting better due to Lampricide treatments and trapping, but it's not nice to find these hanging off your catch. With the treatments of lampricide, we are starting to notice fewer "wounds" on fish.
