It's getting late in the year for bass fishing, but the Michigan DNR says the largemouth bass virus - a virus that did a number on a lot of them 15 years ago - is back. In fact, according to WXYZ.com, it's back in Cedar Lake AGAIN. Cedar Lake straddles Alcona and Iosco Counties (north of Saginaw Bay) but is mostly in Alcona. This virus usually affects larger bass. And while the virus affects other bass and panfish, it seems to only kill the largemouth bass.

To stop the spread of the virus, the Michigan DNR advises anglers to clean their equipment after fishing and to not move fish or fish parts to other bodies of water.

Here's the story.
