What is that weed caught in my prop?

Probably Hydrilla, an exotic (not from around here and not supposed to be here) weed commonly found in aquariums.  It is often spread by propeller as the boat is towed from one lake to another.  Always clean your prop and trailer before putting in!

Who sprays to kill weeds?

Pinellas County Mosquito Control does the spraying at the direction of the Pinellas County Department of Environmental Management.
