Had the day off yesterday and went out to Lake Raven. What happened to all the vegetation? Lily pads are completely gone and all the hyacinth is dead.

Well they screwed up my frog fishing plans yesterday haha. First cloudy, cool day in months and I was chomping at the bit to get to those pads. Needless to say I was pretty pissed upon arrival.

I can understand controlling the vegetation at the swimming area. Why they have to go out there and spray every square foot is beyond me. Since there is no wake boarding and such, there is no need to kill vegetation in other places. The stuff grows when it's hot, then dies back when it's cold. Simple. JMO.

Yeah I sure can't understand it. And while I'm sure there were other factors at play (including the front that came through that day) the frog bite was dead that day. That had to at least have SOMETHING to do with it.
