Trapping/Catching fish.....

I have a 3in lunare wrasse that i cannot get out of my tank. It has a very small white spot which i think is ich. I cannot net him and cannot move my rock around to do it. Is there any way i can trap him? Anyone know any tricks? I have a 1 liter soda bottle with food in it but he wont go near it. Any suggestions?
thanks

If it is a very small spot it might go away on it's own. Wrasses are very difficult to catch without breaking down the tank as they will bury in the substrate.

How big is the tank, and how many fish do you have. Ick cyst will fall off the fish and hatch. From that time they will have 24 hours to find a host if not they will die.
