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.

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
