Its not just bass that come into lakes. Here on the island, we have had a problem with people stocking all kinds of non-natal species . In the last year, my local lake ( which historically held rainbows, cutties and smallmouth bass) has been surrepticiously planted with perch, carp and catfish. I don't know whether this is the result of people conciously wanting those species here or whether it is just some idiot bringing in non-natal fish as bait.

Either way, it has placed a stress on the native species and ultimately has diminished the angling experience.
