  1. Got some rock snot on my waders and boots, want to make sure it's fully removed as it's technically invasive - apparently even one cell of it can be transferred to other rivers and lakes. What's the most effective way of removing it, advice online about it is different on different sites and the clean drain dry is a bit vague? Also, for future reference, how can it be cleaned from boat, I'd probably need to drain everything and pull the plug if in water?
  2. Recently saw a map of the areas with invasive mud snails in Michigan, didn't realise how bad the problem was. Any advice on how to clean my boots after wading to prevent them getting caught in the nooks and crannies (apparently shoelaces are a a common place they hide).
  3. Thanks Nailer. I read a 2% chlorine bleach solution, not exactly sure what that means. A hard blast with hot or pressurised water is apparently good too, now I've done a bit more reading. Draining everything in contact with water (motor can be hiding place apparently) as well should do the trick
  4. I'm new to Michigan and have read about the problems with invasive species, such as zebra and Quagga mussels in the Great lakes. I recently got my first boat and am planning on taking it out on Lakes but I want to be careful not to unknowingly pick up and spread mussels as that's a common way they're transported. Is there any govt advice on this issue and what's the best way to kill them off if any are hiding in the motor, ballast etc? Is a blast with hot water good enough? Advice would be appreciated 😁
  5. What's the best way to clean my boots, gear etc after a fishing trip to prevent NZ mud snails getting caught there? Additionally, what's the best way to prevent zebra and Quagga mussels getting caught on my boat, I drain and unplug everything but I'm not sure if this is enough. Some websites say about cleaning ballasts, motor etc.
