The Mayan's have been here for 2 decades and are spreading. The state makes no effort to address the issue other than to require they not be released if caught. They wouldn't poison the water for a snakehead let alone a panfish. Mayan's make great snook and tarpon bait but that is illegal also. We are just seeing the bluegills come back since the freeze culled the Mayan's. They offend work in pairs and will compete for your fly. They fight better than a bass size for size. Ive caught a few over 2lbs.
