earth day comming up

8 posts in this topic

with earthday comming up, i have made the plan to hit my favorite local trout river with no rods, only trash bags and perhaps a fly box. i try to pick up large tangles of discarded line, but this year i would like to try and get all the trash. does anyone else do this earth day or other.

i always have had the intentions, but now i will put them to action. cool.gif

i realize it is still two weeks away, but as shore anglers, we see the trash, and it is other shore anglers that put it there. sure, some may float to shore from boats. when i lived alone, i realized that i don't mind my own mess, but can't stand when someone else leaves stuff behind. cool.gif

I dont wait for earth day. Every day I am out weather I am shore fishing, in the boat, or on ice, I pick up any garbage I see. Just because someone else put it there doesn't mean it has to stay there. It drives me nuts seeing garbage where I fish.

Im thinking of going down to the capital and breaking a few of the new compact florescent light bulbs in the rotunda and see how long it takes a hazmat team to get there. if none show up maybe I'll buy a few for the house.

Hey California good idea. I bet most of us clean-up when we see junk but if were wading can only carry so much, especially if we plan on fishing! Good to set aside a day or 2 to just clean up.

I plan to go out on Earth Day around the MN River to pick up trash all day. No fishing or nothing...just trash.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
