are any of the launches on the lake free, if so, which one. also the starry stone-wart is in my friends pond. no boats have ever touched it, just birds. 2 acre pond dug 20 years ago or so.if you don't believe me i can easily post some pics in the next couple of days, its from us boaters and the birds. I go fishing every weekend, i clean my boat as do most of you. I do a good job, but i know some weeds still get stuck on. i know my boat transfers weeds every now and then, so don't think your boat is entirely safe. birds and boats both transfer weeds. i hope this settles the bird/boaters dispute.

This blows... What are the Michigan lakes infested with this truly like for fishermen and boaters? I assume garbage for both? Sad for both in this area. These are kinda think outside the box lakes to get big fish but there are many lil m wind waubeesee etc all have quality fish. Future looks dull for the area lakes.

Nothing. Based on what we see from the many Michigan lakes.

Sounds like Big M is where is started... That must mean big is a hot spot for Michigan boaters. Makes sense drive hours to a lake with strict regulations. Or since this lake is an airport for birds... Just saying...with that aside I have seen boat after boat coming out of big m looking like swamp thing and they just drive away. Along with the creeks and rivers connecting multiple lakes, that kind of behavior will only help the spread. I think it's now safe to say any lake in Waukesha and Racine county have a good chance of being infected. So now what?

Clickable link to make easier Figured... Waubeesee and Wind lakes may already have a little as well. Doesn't surprise me at all.

Warden was out last night warning people about the algea. That looked to be the extent of what they were doing. Weed cutters were in full force, water was flowing over the dam, nobody was in the contaminated bay... The floating debris made for some tough fishing but still managed to catch some bass. Boats,birds, magic, who knows how it got in but markers and warning people about it isn't stopping the spread. My guess is that nothing will be done until its out of control. Everything costs money and nobody wants to foot the bill.

To not blame boaters at all is ridiculous... Ill stop cleaning my trailer then because we apparently don't need to ;) Ive fished multiple lakes in 1 day. 3 in a weekend even... As do many people here... Ill make sure the first lake I fish is next is little muskego for early bass, then drop in Pewaukee for mid day musky trolling, then finish up with some walleye on oconomowoc as the sun goes down... without cleaning my trailer or boat because boaters aren't to blame for invasives. Thanks for knowledge!

So they only fly directly north and south. Funny how my buddies swimming hole he dug up north magically stocked itself with fish... Better fence it in to keep all the boats off...

Go downstream to Big Muskego I have seen the same growth there. The DNR needs to post that there is a problem anywhere downstream of Little Muskego if its not to late already.

How many migratory birds do you know fly east to west? Like Michigan to Wisconsin... Rather then, you know, north to south... Zebra mussels didn't come from boats to then I guess, right? Gobies, eurasion milfoil, other exotics anywhere. In any lake. Takes only 1 boat bud.

Stop blaming boaters... How many migratory birds keep the sand bar open every year on this lake. I highly doubt boaters brought this in here. Michigan has a major issue with this algea. Millions of migratory birds fly over into and around this lake. That the issue. There is no stoping this kind of this.

Jewel creek looks like a lot of inflow there zeplure. Lol. Build a temporary wall in front of the dam. Sure it might raise the water if it rains a lot. What else can you do? Just let the lakes downstream and eventually the Fox River be infected? Let's face it we don't know exactly how to deal with invansive species except to delay the spread. I just got checked by the warden elsewhere an hour ago and asked what they where doing. Was told they are trying to scoop it up. He didn't say how and I didn't ask. I didn't ask any further questions about the algae but did the response that places downstream may be next obviously. Too bad this couldn't be in a seepage lake without an in/outflow.
