    Bad news for trout fishing.

  • #2
    A friend says his lake is loaded with zebra mussels, plus bass tournaments are killing the bass fishing. Don't they weigh and release the fish in competition ?
    Snake heads have been downstate for years.

      Jimbo snakeheads have been around but they are on the move and getting more out of control.

        As far as the invasive there a lot more going on than just snakeheads and you said bad news for trout but even the trout are invasive.
        • Bighead carp (Hypophtalmichtys nobilis)
        • Black carp (Mylopharyngodon piceus)
        • European rudd (Scardinius erythropthalmus)
        • Quagga mussel (Dreissena bugensis)
        • Round goby (Neogobius melanostomus)
        • Ruffe (Gymnocephalus cernuus)
        • Rusty crayfish (Orconectes rusticus)
        • Silver carp (Hypophtalmichtys molitrix)
        • Snakehead (all species) (ID poster)
        • Tubenose gobyOpens In A New Window (Proterothinus marmoratus)
        • Zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha)
        All are invasive in my waters around me.

          Where are you located ? In Erie we have the goby that I think have taken care of the zebra mussels. You did not mention asian carp.

            There’s a bunch I’m sure I’m missing cause there are sea lampreys in Erie. There are also invasive aquatic plants that aren’t good. Let’s just say I fish Erie every once in awhile and close by it. I can’t stand the goby since I can’t let the bait sit to long in some areas especially around the bay. First time I caught a goby had no clue what it was and didn’t want to touch it. Anyone else can think of any post away.

              I think they have the lampreys under control. They disperse a chemical in the feeder streams where they breed and it kills the eggs.
