Don’t Dump That Live Bait!

Preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species is important to protect your lakes. Anglers dumping live bait into a waterbody from which that bait did not originate is one of the most common ways aquatic invasive species are spread. Two ways you can help stop the spread:

1. Never dump leftover bait into the water.

2. Never take live-caught bait to another lake.

Instead – take your bait home to use in the future, offer it to another angler at the same lake, or put it in the trash.
