zebra muscles

Recommended Posts

We took out 2 docks and boat lifts this weekend and all 4 were covered with zebra muscles. This was on 2 separate parcels in Isle Bay. Judging by just these 2 incidents I would say it is more widespread than people think, or maybe I was tinking they were just isolated reports. Anybody else see this in taking docks out this fall?

My Dock/ Lift was covered on the north end by the wealthwood access. First time in 6 years.

I would let the DNR know about them and if you kept any I'd bring them along also.

If you keep any zebra mussels, DNR wants you to put them in a container with rubbing alcohol in it before you send them in. DO NOT get caught transporting them anywhere without the DNR knowing about it first.

DNR knows they are in the lake. Old news. I think they know what they look like. If it makes you feel better, call them.

Yes, the DNR know they are in the lake and they know what they look like, but they also want to know the extent of the infestation. Since nobody wants to pay increased fees so they (the DNR) can go out and do the work themselves, our help goes a long way in keeping cost down. Let the DNR know what you guys have found.

We called them that afternoon and they came out and took a look, took some photos and samples.

      I am coming up there Sept 5 and staying a week.  I can hardly wait!  I want to get in on the trolling bite before it gets too late.

      One of the reasons I decided to try them is size. Can't find shiners here and the fatheads are small, almost as small as crappie minnows. The light pike sucker minnows are 4" - 5" and with the water cooling down and the later part of the season, I'm thinking the size will more closely match natural forage. We'll see how things go.

      Went out of superior entry yesterday morning. Found some decent laker action. They were all on the small side and most all of them came in 52 fow on the riggers set at 45 ft. Ended up with 7 lakers and a bonus walleye. Had a lot of quick releases on the riggers as well so probably smaller Lakers.

      One of the lakers had 14 pieces of minnows in it's gut!! And it still attacked my spoon

      By the way, we saw three nice bucks in a group on Wakemup Village Rd on the way home.  I was sort of surprised since They were clearly in a group, and I thought bucks were more solitary.    Looked like 6-8 pointers.    Good looking deer.

      Went out late last week out of the Wisc entry and dropped a line in 55 feet of water and nailed one right off the bat before setting any other lines out. Trolled till 100am and we picked up 5 lakers and one nice walleye. Walleye went back.   Most on dipseys and one came off a  4 oz snap weight right off the back with spoons. No particular coleor
    • tacklejunkie
      Agree with the above. But I've also caught plenty of eating sized walleyes with them, also

      I've used light suckers when I couldn't get shiners or rainbows and was going after bigger walleye and they did work.

      We had bought bait for pike fishing last winter, well I sent my wife in to buy it while I fueled the truck.  Scoop of crappies and a dozen suckers for tip ups.  She came back with a scoop of crappies and a dozen light pike suckers.  Those are for pike, right?   We couldn’t get on the lake we intended to so went to plan B for walleyes with friends.  I “gave em a try” and was really impressed how well they worked.  I’ll definitely do it again.

      Went to Landing last night (Saturday).   Had reservations and got a nice table by the window.   Server was working hard but seemed like maybe she was new and over loaded.    My iced tea was served in a shorter glass, and the water was plastic cups.  Maybe the dishwasher was behind.   Food was good and served hot.   My burger was a little over cooked but not bad enough to make me complain to the place.  Just you guys.      Prices moderate.  They  had run out of artichokes for the artichoke dip...  Price was good.   Plenty food for me and mrs.     No alcohol, my buddy is on methotrexate and gets one beer a week.   His was friday at the cook vfw burger night which I highly recommend.
