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.

      They closed the county roads leading to the 4 accesses on Koochiching County.   Fishing and hunting are still allowed.   Looking forward to you getting up here.

      I would go back and read Cliff and Ace and others comments about past openers.    A lot depends on when the ice goes out.     Which end you gonna be at?      And bring warm clothes and good raingear...   I've been snowed on in the past.

      Thanks for the reports. I may go if the wind goes down today may need to pet a few kitties today!

      I heard from a buddy that there will be no fishing allowed on the river this spring. Any truth to that? I think it is a good idea otherwise there will be people coming up in droves as usual. Stay in your house and say some prayers.   I am stuck in my house down here in Texas and hope to eventually get back up North. Canada border closed so I couldn't hit my favorite spots on Rainy Lake anyway.

      Alright everyone, since I’m starting to see some open water out here in South Dakota I’m itching to get off the ice fishing talk. Due to the virus, this is likely to be my first opener on Vermilion in about 20 years. What are some strategies that you use that time of year? Depth, presentation, bait etc.    I’ll warm up on the April walleyes out here in the meantime!

      Got home from work while it was raining.  It finally slacked up around 5 and I took a walk around the yard, picked up some stuff, trimmed a few trees and stretched out a little further to figure out a few blind sets for turkey season.  As comfortable as I am with the ground around me, it was worth the scout.  I figured out 3 spots that I hadn’t considered before.     It was definitely refreshing to be outside again and now I can at least have some anticipation for the upcoming season!

      Huh, crows.  Interesting.  Never thought about them as a spring shoot type bird.   In prime breeding colors I bet! 😁   I watched a dad gum black squirrel take a hideout in one of my new wood duck boxes tonight.  I think I’ll have words with him tomorrow.

      Went out to break in the shotgun and boy I was shooting way off mark at them crows. Finn sat there watching and shaking his head as I unloaded multiple times. It was fun to shoulder the shotgun again. Might try again tomorrow
