Lake Havasu Marine Association

The photos above show the volunteers of the Lake Havasu Marine Association planning their
complimentary golf cart shuttle service to boaters at the Lake Havasu State Park.
Since the Park was jammed to capacity with boaters wanting to launch,
the overflow Windsor 4 parking area was called into service and there is
considerable distance between Lot 4 and where the boats actually launch.
To eliminate that long walk, LHMA rented several golf cars from Premier Golf Cars in Lake Havasu
and had them at the ready, giving free shuttle rides between the ramps and parking lot to help expedite launching.

Our next quarterly meeting will be held on
Wed. September14, 2016
at Shugrues 6:00pm

Trending 1: Another “milestone” for the LHMA “Sticker A Mussel” program has been achieved. Since its inception 40 months ago, Sticker A Mussel has now made one-on-one contact with over 20,000 boaters (an average of 504 boaters per month) providing education and elevating awareness about how to best prevent the spread of AIS. In addition, social media outreach via the Lake Havasu Marine Association Facebook page has exploded in the months of May and June with a total combined reach exceeding 60,000. “When we started this campaign back in 2013, we had no idea that it would attain this level of success,” commented LHMA president/CEO Jim Salscheider. “The dedication and commitment to this effort by our team of member / volunteers has been remarkable. We also greatly appreciate the support we have received from our local government agencies who have joined us in this effort, and of course U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service who have generously contributed to this campaign with grants to make it possible.

We still have work to do, but I think we're making a positive impact with boaters on the lower Colorado River.”

Trending 2: Here's a firsthand account of a recent (within the last 30 days) AIS inspection experience by our Lake Havasu Marine Association member/Fishing Coordinator Jeff Dean. Jeff is well versed on the AIS protocols since he attended one of Dee Davis' mussel training schools earlier this year. In April, Jeff pulled his pontoon boat out of the water at Park Moabi Marina after it have been in the water at a slip for approx. 6 months. He took the boat directly to a local car wash and did a complete soap and hot water rinse and wipe down in preparation for transporting the boat 60-days later to Big Bear Lake in the San Bernardino Mountains in California.

After 60-days of outside parking in the Havasu sun, Jeff proceeded to transport his boat to Big Bear, passing through the Needles, California agriculture inspection station. After a thorough inspection at the station he was told to return his boat to its original place of origin (Havasu) and was entered into the computer data base because there were a few small places on the hull bottom with a visible hard crust-like substance which might have been dead mussels, however no live veligers or mussels were found.

Jeff returned to Havasu with his boat, and made an appointment with Kate at AZGF to do a decon. That was done and Jeff was given the required paperwork to verify that a decon was performed and his intended destination for the boat in California had to be specified on the paperwork.

Two weeks later Jeff returned to the Needles inspection station. This time the boat was given approval to enter California, but it was wired to the trailer (boat was still considered to be under quarantine) and given the instructions that the wire only could be removed by a California Department of Fish and Game officer following another inspection at his intended destination.

Jeff continued on his way to Big Bear's Holloway Marina. No California Fish and Game official was present at the marina, however the marina was able to contact by phone Fish and Game and receive their approval to remove the secure wire after the boat passed their inspection. Finally, a successful launch at Big Bear Lake was made.
