Default Re: New Herring Bait Regs

So does this apply to ALL baitfish, creek chubs and smelts and shiners. No one will have bait if thats the case. Of course spreading the disease is detrimental too....if it's shown this is truly a finite source and not just speculation. I never found the 'wash your boat' principal was really very effective, I wash mine the best I can, but with so many nooks and crannies in the conventional boat trailer, hauling out of Oneida lake, car washing the thing, and putting in a week later at Otsego Lake is hardly fool proof against millfoil, or zebra muscles. What happens to the bait fish ejected from a herrons stomach 2 hours after it flew from one wetland to another.
