Just a question to some other fellow anglers. I went out to my house yesterday after the vikings fiasco and found that i have new neighbors. now thats not a problem, although its a biggg lake and 15 feet was a little close. the problem is all the garbage they left on the ice. Pop cans, wood blocks, napkins, paper towels and "something" in a plastic bag. do I : pick up their garbage and say nothing or give the friendly game warden a call. they moved their house, but with the new snow it wasn't real hard to track them down... frown.gif

I would simply bag of the trash, follow the tracks to their new location, leave the trash with a little note about packing out what you pack in. I dont think the CO could really do anything about it. I'm constantly frustrated by the trash I find at my fishing holes...summer and winter. I usually pick up what I can and go on about my business. It's a shame that people dont already have the "leave it better than you found it" mentality. They are obviously not to ethically oriented seeing is how close they set up to you. some people's kids! Good luck out there.

ah, garbage.....another one of those problems that make the human race look like a bunch of (Contact US Regarding This Word). I would have zero problem dragging a bag full of "their" garbage over to their house with a little note.

Last June my crew and I went to Kabetogama and camped on an island. When we got to the camp site, the fire pit was full of cans, glass broken on the ground, etc. We picked everything up and put the stuff in our trash bag. About a half hour later, the forest service guys showed up (young fellas...summer college job). They said they had heard that this particular camp site was pretty dirty. Of course, we had everything cleaned up by the time they arrived, so they had nothing to clean up. So, they sat there with us and visited for a good hour, I bet. The greatest thing is that I got the young skipper to take me for a ride in the forest service boat. It was pretty cool of him to take me out. Those boats are built like a brick you-know-what! I take my hat off to those guys. They must see a lot of people who are disgusting. They could have very easily been not so friendly, but quite the contrary. It was a pleasure. We live by the rule to leave your area better than it was when we came. We want it to look like nobody has been there.

The neighbors were at it again in the not so distant past...Went out to the house Sunday before the Vikings (yea, yea) and they had decorated the snowbanks with budweiser cans again. Its bad enough they have to litter, but drinking bud...you've got to have some self respect. This time I had the digital camera along and took pictures. It had better not happen again or Mr. Campbell will get some pictures for evidence. By the way fishing sucked. frown.gif

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
