The hydrilla is quite thick in places. Makes for good fish populations..... :)
Here are a couple of pictures of a rather large White Amur I took a few years back in southwestern AZ . I don't know how heavy he was but I could not hold him up with one hand! The canal was about 30' accross as I recall, & he had a hard time making "U" turns.... :)
Here I am with the Amur. Guess I forgot in the excitement of the moment & presented the dirty side to the camera.
