One of the bluegills from the first batch, had the parasite just beneath the skin at the base of it's dorsal fin. It's the little white dot near the back

Thanks for posting pics, I am taking a parasitology course next semester, and doing my senior seminar "undergraduate research" on parasites commonly found in the local Etheostoma (blennioides, caeruleum, flabellare, nigrum, spectabile, etc....) that central Illinois has to offer.
