Nuisance Fish Survived Icy Winter in Indiana Lake

LAGRANGE, Ind. (AP): State wildlife officials who hoped the Midwest's bitterly cold winter would eradicate a nuisance fish from a northern Indiana lake say the pest survived the winter in a large numbers. A mid-May survey of LaGrange County's Royer Lake found hundreds of gizzard shad in the natural lake. Gizzard shad can overpopulate lakes and compete with popular sport fish.
