Question Moss at Miller's Island

Does anybody happen to know where all of the moss is coming from at Miller's Island? I was there Saturday and Sunday and it was horrible. We got lucky and caught a few fish, but if you didn't get a bite within the first 10 seconds or so, the moss covered your bait and you had to reel in and tear the vegetation off of your line. Any ideas?
Oh-oh-oh Aint Bee, get the net! This here's a Goodun !

You are more than likely seeing the invasive Didymo Algae. It is spreading all over the Southeast in recent years.
