yes, cut clean too, the warm water they will be shallow, as it cools they will go deeper. I have lost a lot of fish due to zebra mussels, just have to learn to live with them because they are not going anwywhere

Fish on Belton regularly. Line cut issues not terribly bad. I check my line much more frequently than before the Zebra's arrived and find I am retying more often due to abrasion.

Same as T-bird, just keep checking your line.

I do understand that around the first of the year, Spider Wire will be coming out with a aluminum coated braid.
That should help with the Zebra Mussels.

The same type of "wear and tear" has been around long before i even knew what zebra mussels were. I just cut off and retie. No way for me to know if those are causing it or not.

This is from one of our freshwater make up inlet screens, that is fed from lake Bridgeport.

You'd think some researchers in modern aquatic biology would be able to come up with something to make them unable to reproduce that's not harmful to the environment.
