Anyone have a problem with Rock Snot ?????

Years ago the wonderful lake I spent my summers on became a night mare.   Seems that after a million years of being pure, people were infesting the lake with blood suckers that hitch hiked on the bottoms of boats as they were hauled from lake to lake.

Never forget the horror of pushing our boat off the sand to find a pile of those varmints.  Half a box of Morton salt did a job on them but I never felt safe again going into the water without wondering if one of those nastys would clomp down on me.

How does a teenage female pull one of those nastys off her back --  how does anyone touch those things in the first place.?

WTF?  The article is about algae, but it sounds like you're talking about leeches.

I believe I was speaking of most any kind of invasive species that travel or are carried to a place that is foreign to them.

Fresh water lakes are undergoing all kind of threats from pollution to foreign critters with no natural enemies.

It is not just for fisherman to fight to keep our natural beauty pure, the cycle of life depends on clean lakes and streams. 

Example---If an invasive species came in and destroyed the underwater plants and natural algae to our wild rice, we would have allot of starving Moose up here.   All our wild life would be in trouble from the fish to the birds.   

Few really take this seriously until the process cannot be stopped.  Check out our great lakes that now have a problem with this foreign fish that grows to 3-4 feet long and has no natural enemy.   FOX News tried to gather some top notch Chiefs that are known to make a SEA GULL tasty and challenged them to make this fish palatable. Very difficult, they fried them, steamed them, boiled them roasted them but the results were very mixed.  This fish will never become a staple on anyones plate here in the USA, perhaps they can be sold in Asia as that is where I believe they came from in the first place.

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH how I HATE the Loosahatchie!!! When I was in Millington, a classmate of mine & I decided to raft down the Loosahatchie. Damned Water Moccasins were trying to get in the raft by dropping off of trees or trying to slither into the raft!! We couldn't get of of that river quick enough. WE put in just outside of Millington and rafted about an hour and a half downstream.

Didn't see any snakes, the water levels went down pretty bad this past summer and are just getting back to normal.

They might still be hibernating this time of year.
