I've been doing some diving at Pleasant...that lake is absolutely covered with mussles. They are all over everything. they blanket the floor. They seem to be all over the bouders and rocks.

There are millions and millios of them in that lake....I was shocked at how widespread they are.

Just fyi...

yEah I just go back, as the water is dropping you can see them covering all the bluffs and boulders. It's crazy how fast they spread, hell it's only been about three or four years since they discovered them there right?

Unless you drain the lake killing all the fish and clean every nook and cranny they will never go away. And it is a #s lake but there are good sized fish in pleasant. Stripers will prolly be caught in the avg 5-10 pound range in prolly 2-3 more years. I also see a hella lot of bass spawn in the backs of coves and near the marinas.
