Default Rock Bass & Crayfish Populations

I've seen many Rock Bass, many I see are under the dock, or nearby rocks.

The crayfish I hear used to be abundant in the late 50's and 60's. I've saw some under rocks in the early 2000's but now in 2017, theres almost none.

Maybe the Rock Bass to blame? Or other fish populations. I've also heard the Rock Bass are eating Small, and Large Mouth eggs?

Possibly the Milfoil that is polluted the lake could be an issue. Or the pesticides Lake Winnipesaukee used is dwindling Crayfish populations. I've also seen about 30 of them in a tank in a Pet Express in MA.

I would recommend killing Rock Bass, for hornpout bait, ore using them for fertilizer.

If you do see any significant signs of Crayfish populations I would like to hear them.

To report Milfoil press the link below

In the 50's & 60's there were an abundance of crayfish at our place. Not anymore!
