Fished Choke today and almost every bass had a mouth full of leeches. Are these harmful?

No, just ignore them as you fillet the fish.

Yep, definitely don’t want to get them into your bag of filets. But if you do happen to catch any non-keepers, pull the leeches out of their mouths with your pliers. Don’t want the next guy that catches them, to have to worry about them.
