Trash

Recommended Posts

fishingbuddy

I know this probably should go into the Mississippi Forum but it applys to all water. I walk my dog along the Mississippi below the 494 bridge. It is amazing on how much trash is on the banks. My girl friend and I started taking those plastic bags from the super market and fill up 4 in about 5 min. If us fishermen pick up just one bag we can make a differerence no matter what river or lake.

Come on opener

I know exactly. The rivers around here are a mess right now. I did some picking up the other day. I also live right beside an arena and basketball court so this time of the year makes my backyard look like a garbage dump....The worst is the ribbons that the arena uses for the blue and red lines. That comes out when they take out the ice...What a mess!!!!

Thanks for all the thought about the garbage. Your are correct, if we would all pick up a few pieces, things would look much better. smile.gif

just yesterday i was fishing a catch and release, no live bait, barbless hooks only trout river. i had to climb over rocks and through wild rasberry bushes and wade ice cold water to get to a really great spot. when i got there, i found 8 or 9 empty beer cans, a castmaster spoon package and 20 yards of 10 pound mono wrapped up in a ball laying on shore. i'm hoping to hit it again next week armed only with garbage bags. in fact, i'll post pics jsut to make sure i follow through. smirk.gif

Gentlemen, unfortunately this is a subject that knows no boundries. No nation or jurisdiction is exempt from those who feel it's ok to disgard their trash when and where they choose.

I was taught by my father, not to leave trash behind. I was taught that by doing so would eventually create problems for wildlife and for that matter people too. I had all the respect in the world for my father and even though he has long passed on, his lessons are always something that I remember.

Maybe if we taught our youth from an early age things might be different. Maybe if our school systems introduced anti-littering messages to our youth, things might improve. I don't have the answers, but I do know that somewhere out there is a solution.

This is a great time of year to get the kids away from the tube/computer and pickup some of the trash around outside!c63 grin.gif

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
