Hello Mrmagpie and welcome to Anglers Net :)

 

Are they all over the body? Possibly spawning damage?

No just the odd spot one looked like tail fin was rotted, I have only just joined anglersnet and appreciate my description is vague, have a few photos will figure out how to post them soon, they are way too small (the fish) to be spawning I think

As a new member you cannot yet post photos using the forum software.  However, if you upload the photos to an internet site that allows photo sharing, you can include a url link in a post and the photo(s) will show up properly.

Children can be a blessing in this day & age.  For instance, my "smartphone" seems to be much smarter than I am but when I need help, one of the kids or grandkids is always willing & able to sort things out.
