I thought I would post this to make sure everyone knows the rules due to this thread, as I think it caught alot of people by surprize.
http://www.azbasszone.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=122532

It might help save someone a ticket. I only posted the Day use boater stuff. Not the long term use stuff as it doesnt apply to very many of us in here.

Don Mitchell Sent me a PDF file that I could copy and past to a thread.

Interesting. I guess it makes sense.

The one question I have is, how will the know if you have actually gone through the steps and that someone didnt just dry out there livewell, etc.

Hopefully this will help the folks who needed "wash" and/or "decontaminate" defined previously. Damn, I would love to see some coupons distributed.

Totaly Stupid. Only in AZ or Cal.

1. "Dry Completely" ??? Really . .
So every boat trailer has carpeted rails and fender gaurds with carpet over 2x4s or plywood.
Your telling me that when folks take out, they're supposed to stand around the ramp and wait for the carpet and plywood to completely dry out?? Lets see . . a cloudy cool day in February . . will only have to wait about six hours to "dry completely" !!

2. "Disenfect w/ 5% bleach solution before entering another lake" . . .
And you will enforce this how ??? If someone goes to one lake on Friday and another on Sunday, how will the inspecting office know where the boaters been?

These are rules that can not be enforced; totally impracticle; and founded on pure histaria. The definition of insanity.

I've got a better solution for the mud snail problem !!
Everywhere that these critters have shown up, the smallmouth population has exploded.

The answer . . stock large quantities of smallmouth in all AZ lakes and remove the saltwater stripe that feed on their young.

. . then we will probably have rules about reducing numbers of big smallmouth.

I don't think the intent is for you to wait at the lake for your stuff to dry only do all this if you are going to another body of water within the 5 days???

Yep, who comes up with these idiotic requirements. Someone needs to be slapped up side the head for this one.

They also need to define "vicinity" Should I sit on the launch ramp until EVERYTHING IS COMPLETELY DRY???? Hell, that could take days!

This whole ordeal is a joke...its not a matter of IF it happens, its WHEN...people need to pull their heads out of thier asses. They would be better off saving the taxpayer dollars to put towards any types of maintenance programs in order to clean this stuff off and maintain efficiency. It is what it is and making people jump through these ridiculous hoops is just proof of their lack of intelligence towards prolonging the inevitable.

Littledog you hit it on the head!! What if you were fishing at nite it would be the next day before it is dry. what if it is raining?? not only that who is going to put 5% bleach by volum in there boat not knowing if it will damage the interior. but having said this they do need a way to controll the spread. I did hear that there is movement on to stop fishing in the state true or not I do not know. But I do know there are special interest groups that do not want anyone useing public land, forests and etc. and they are taking our rights away slowly. So what they say we have to do is by far going to far But again a away to discorage the use of boats or anything that floats. An item that is need to fish from. Time will tell --- catch a big one
