By following these four simple steps each time you leave the water, you can stop aquatic hitchhikers.

  • Remove any visible mud, plants, fish or animals before transporting equipment.
  • Eliminate water from equipment before transporting.
  • Clean and dry anything that came in contact with the water. Boat, trailer, motor, net, fishing gear, swimming stuff, clothing, people, dogs, etc.
  • Never release plants, fish, insects, or animals into a body of water unless they came out of that body of water.
