Do you know anything about fish with writing on it? I caught a largemouth bass with writing on it. It said Weapon, Carona and Nasca.

HI I CAUGHT A FISH WITH A WORD ON IT IT SAYS WEAPON AND AN0THER WORD IS CARONA AND ON THE OTHER SIDE IT HAS N A S C A HAVE YOU ANY THING YOU CAN TELL ME ABOUT THIS IT IS ON A LARGEMOUTH BASS ABOUT 12 INCHES LONG ON THE STRIPE ON THE SIDE OF THE FISH.

I have never heard of anything like this before. I know that fish are tagged, but not written on. If your story is true, I suspect that someone caught the fish and then added the writing before releasing the fish back into the water. I have checked with some other anglers and no one has ever heard of fish with writing on them. If I were you, I would not eat the fish as well. I suspect that someone did this and who knows what else they did to this fish. You can take the fish to the DNR where you caught the fish if you do have the fish. I am sure they can give you more information. I would have to say that someone is messing around with you. However, take the fish to the DNR and see what they have to say. Maybe they have a new program in line, but I think anglers would have had word about this. I have not heard of this ever before, so I cannot tell you anymore than to take it to a DNR officer. You can always forget about it, but you never know, they might have other such sightings to share with you. Good luck and hope you catch some bass that you can safely eat in the future. Maybe you need to find a different place to fish so you can enjoy a good fish dinner. All the best in the future with your fishing and location.
