Over the past several years I have seen alot of changes
on different lakes and tributaries. Water levels, polution,
ect....! This past weekend I saw something that I cannot
put out of my mind though. I was prefishing for a tournament
and in the process saw different areas of the lake where
"CORMORANTS" have killed trees and anything else their
"POOP" comes in contact with. Years ago, the Alred Islands
seemed to be the only place to find this distruction; but
now it is affecting other parts of the lake. My question
is, How long or should I say how many acres have to be
destroyed before something is done. Is the state keeping
up with this? I know several years ago a pest by the name
of "Southern Pine beetle" was destroying 1000's of acres of pine
forests and the state jumped right in and tried to do
something about it. Each year the Cormorant populations
continues to grow. These birds not only destroy land but
eat huge amounts of fish. Alot of these fish are game fish
in the forms of crappie and bass. I appologize for "VENTING";
but when I see something like this it just makes me MAD!
