Dating myself but ya in the late 70's/early 80's CC was covered up w/hydrilla. The water was amazingly clear and fishing was great. It got sprayed because it would get so thick in the coves that it would literally choke out entire coves making them unusable to the property owners. Some couldn't get their boats off lifts in their docks for entire summers. Property owners won. Another example of extreme "fixes" without attempting a balance.
