Not a fishing story, but figured a bunch of you will want to shake your head as much as me.

Unfortunately I don't think there's any way to stop their spread into the great lakes at this point. I just hope the ecosystem can handle it.

The really sad thing to me is people are still purposefully putting invasives into new waterways. A forty pound fish didn't swim its way into a landlocked pond that was built 6 months ago.

That lake is pretty cold. from what I understand they may not have a long shelf life in there due to them needing warmer waters (if im not mistaken)
