You should consider putting a Zebra Mussel monitoring device on either your lift or dock.

Take a scrap piece of PVC pipe, maybe a foot or two in length, and cap one end of the pipe. Attach the capped pipe to your dock or lift however you choose but make certain the pipe is submerged, about a foot or so off the bottom of the lake, preferably in the shade, so the Zebra Mussels can find their way into the pipe. Inspect the pipe on a regular basis and report anything you think could possibly Zebra Mussels to the DNR.
