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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
