Stop the Spread of Aquatic Pests
To prevent spreading these aquatic pests:
- Thoroughly inspect your vessel's hull, outdrive, trim plates, trolling plates, prop guards, transducers, and trailers. If you see any "hitchhikers," remove them. Remove aquatic plants clinging to the trailer frame, axles, wheels, hitch, motor's lower unit, and interior vessel spaces.
- Spray down your vessel and trailer before leaving any lake or stream or at home before setting out for a new boating location.
- Drain all bilge water, livewells, and bait buckets before leaving any waterway. Leftover bait should not be released or
