To the Times of Ti:
Based on what I’ve read, two fishermen were ticketed for having milfoil and one with water chestnuts and they are going before the judge in Ti. They are responsible to check their own boats/trailers, and be personally responsible for any violations for failing to do so.
There is no excuse for failing to check your boat/trailer, when the potential consequences are so high. This region’s taxpayers already spent millions to try to keep Lake George free of these aquatic invaders and face many more millions if boaters don’t take this seriously. This boat should have been checked by its owner.
