Jim Hudson Memorial Clean-Up Day - February 3rd


Recommended Posts

We all see and talk about the trash left on the ice and at the landings. Some of us pick it up, some say, oh the next guy will get it, others pay no attention at all to it...

Let's dedicate Super Bowl Sunday to the Jim Hudson Clean Up Day!

Where: Everywhere

Time: Anytime before the game.

Who: Everyone.

Make it a quick Family trip to the closest lake to your house, or an all day excursion.

Even spending 10 minutes away from your fishing hole, grabbing a handful of trash and bringing it home with you.

We all enjoy the outdoors in one way or another, lets keep it clean for future generations to enjoy as well.

Being a Steward, and paying it forward for your kids, Brothers kids or anyone.

A $25 gift card will be mailed to the person(s) that posts the best picture of Clean-up day. Make it fun! Keep our lakes and rivers clean.

Hello, great topic and a nice way to dedicate a day to a fallen friend!

I was out earlier this morning and gathered some trash, and I have a couple pictures to post. Is there a way to post a picture or two without first hosting it on a website somewhere though? I don't have a hosting account anywhere frown

Put the smack down on some crappies this morning before trash time.

I must say, No Bait Nate and I got something interesting...what we thought was a snowmobile cover that we had to cut out of the lake, turns out is a Sturgis 2012 tarp/cover of some sort. wink

Cant wait to see what ya'll got!

Alrighty, here's my trash collecting find. I just saw a colored object in the distance and decided to investigate because I'm always finding interesting things on the ice. Upon closer inspection, here's what I found. It makes for a sort of sad piece of social commentary on the state of "outdoorsmen" in our country doesn't it? A crappy looking American flag with crappy American beer.

P.S. This was found on Cedar near New Prague. If anyone out there wants their flag back, I have it. You can have your beer cans too.

P.P.S Thanks for the upload tip. I had only previously seen the 4th icon from the left which only linked URLs smile

Portlis, awesome! You have a $25 Visa Gift Card, a $25 Applebee's gift card, a $25 Joes Sporting Goods gift card, 5 free meals from Arby's($35), and a SWEET Gift pack coming from MEO

Someone hit the 'That Was Easy' Button! smile

Thank you to all that spent a few extra minutes of time cleaning up our outdoors. It good for the soul to know you are doing something for current and future generations!

Portlis, clean up some of your Private Messages, so I can PM you and get your name/address to get everything mailed out to you! smile

Good job Portlis!

About as I expected on Burntside over the weekend I could fill a sandwich bag with stuff I found on the ice - which is super! But most of it was my own stuff. grin

I did keep an eye out though and picked up a Mountain Dew bottle near the access when I was coming off the lake yesterday. Every little bit helps.

I'm very thankful folks don't trash the lake up there and also very thankful for those who do pick up after others who don't seem to care as much. I did a clean up on Rush Lake a few years ago and we loaded a roll off in a couple days. Very disappointing to have that much stuff to pick up.

Thanks to all who had this on their mind and took action while on the lake over the weekend. cool

Hah, wow, not going to argue with that smile I almost feel guilty. blush Please do know that anything I get is greatly appreciated and will have a good home. I'm only in my second year of truly getting into the sport and still acquiring gear (I don't even own a power auger, flasher, or tip ups yet... but a flasher is next on the list!), so the stuff will absolutely get used and used often.

I completely deleted my PM box, so hopefully that takes care of that.

I always pick up the trash around me when I head out, it's just the right thing to do, but after this I'm going to be extra vigilant about it. Greatly, greatly appreciated.

Nice job Portlis. Tip of the hat to bundt2k who took the time to organize this. Let's hope it get becomes an annual event. I'd be up for a March clean-up & fishing event.

A March clean up sounds like a great idea. When the snow melts it really does expose the garbage left by the slobs. And I'm sure we can get into some great pannie action after the work is done!
