Just use what you normally use, just check your line for frayed or nicked spots a little more frequently... I fish Lake Erie (ground zero) and I've never worried about or lost fish because of zebra muscles... Plus a lot of the rivers and inland lakes now have them... You'll see the lakes that are infested with them clear up a little then it will level off. I haven't seen any studies that draw a correlation between less fish and zebra muscles... Heck, the Great Lake smallmouth have exploded since their introduction...

Didn't work for me and my brother.

The Abrazx has seemed to fix it. Just my real life experience!

Agape, thanks for sharing the Abrazx info. For those that don't think it's a big deal, you should fish have fished those brush piles on Ray Roberts a few years ago like John175 mentioned. Fish were loaded in there but the Zebra mussels would cut 20 lb floro like a knife. Every time. Fortunately, the Zebra population on Ray Roberts is way down now.
