Apple snails and their eggs were recently discovered in the canals in Luling. The canals ultimately drain into the Lake Cataouatche basin. These things will eat out the grass in the blink of an eye. We are just now getting some nice grass beds back. If you see the pink eggs over the water, please take the time to knock them into the water where they will die. You mainly see these eggs in the spring.
I made a fishing trip to Lake Boeuf yesterday and was shocked at the amount of open water due to apple snails consuming the grass. Also, there were eggs hanging over the water all over the lake. If these things spread they will wreck havoc on a lot of areas in Louisiana. Does the LDWF have a plan to kill or at least slow down these things?
