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.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Thanks Cliff, weather looks dynamite so that's a good start!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!
