People leaving garbage on lakes!!!

6 posts in this topic

I was out at Buffalo lake this afternoon/evening. I noticed my dog sniffing over at an area where someone had obviously fished in the last couple days. There was garbage all over the place. 1 LB tanks all over, a half empty box of burger patties, beer/soda cans, and other misc. plastic items. I picked up what I could. All I want to know is.... what kind of sportsman does this? DO they think all the litter magically dissapears after the ice melts. THis makes me mad, because all this does is ruins our future fisheries, and here we have peopel who think it is party time on the ice, which is fine, but they cannot pick up after themselves. PIGS!!!

I would love to see a CO give someone a 500.00 littering ticket for this. My message to the littering people..."hey dummy, do you think the garbage melts with the ice???"

I think this is something we should police ourselves. If you see someone leave some trash behind go over and politely pick it up and tell them to take it with them. If they say no find out what they are driving get the license plate and call it in. These people need to be stopped from ruining our lakes.

      FYI 2 of the 3 landings near us were starting to look a little beat up yesterday. With the temps & moisture today along with more of same forcasted for tomorrow, I have to believe that access to the area lakes will be getting tougher.

      Still about 14-15 inches of ice...plenty of slop and water today. Access was very beat up when I left.

      Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend? I see Hunters point and Agate bay are closed due to cracks by shore. I usually fish the east shore but might have to be open to something else.... Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend?

      I took a break from walleye fishing on Vermilion and decided to chase crappies for a few days to get away from the crowds. Fun and a good bite also! Cliff
