C'mon people, pick up your trash

Recommended Posts

I mean maybe its just me, but picking up your trash should not even be thought about twice, I was over in WhiteWater trout fishin and I was just absoultely disgusted by all the trash laying around that area. Please pick up after yourselves and dont be the (Contact US Regarding This Word) who ruins it for everyone else.

I agree, we all need to pick up after ourselves. I think the majority of the people that read these posts already do.

I like to pick up stuff around where other people are fishing. It leaves an impression. If they see you picking up more than your own stuff maybe they will be more aware of what they are diong. Makes them feel a little guilty.

If the weather holds out we are going to canoe the Zumbro and gather a few bags of trash left behind by other. You are welcome to join in if you want.

And by the way.... Welcome to the site.

By my comments I was totally not implying how anyone here is like that, it was just a general comment, thats all.

Not to sound negative over the situation. It's like beating a dead horse when trying to tell people something like this. There's usually a pee brain around every corner.

It ticks me off too when people disrespect our land and waters.

I took my Mom fishing along a river bank yesterday. We got ready to leave and I flipped over my five gallon bucket and picked up enough garbage to almost fill it. She thought that was nice of me to pick up after someone else.

Also it's not just litter, someone left two sheepies laying there to rot and stink. Thats worse I think because they sure do stink!

This past winter on Eagle Lake by Mankato my uncle had a portable fishing relatively close too his permanent all night. The following morning this guys leaves for a while and leaves his portable out there with beer bottles and garbage strew all over around his portable, and also left a tip-up in the water. My uncle decided too leave but before leaving he picked up over dozen beer bottles, some broken, and the rest of the trash, along with the tip-up and tossed it all in the guys portable. I hope the guy got the hint that this was all very unacceptable.

      Has anyone here had any luck on Rice Lake yet this year? All that rain a couple of weeks ago made the water level go way up and fishing opener for us was a complete bust ( although apparently someone on the lake caught a 31" walleye according to a DNR officer).   I'll be up there for at least part of the long weekend this weekend. Looking forward to some fishing. I'm contemplating targeting the bay that Morning Star Resort is on for some walleye. I don't claim to be an expert in fishing or fish behavior but it's early season so shallower seems to be better than deeper dropoffs like we would normally target during the summer. Forecasts I've seen suggest targeting bays too. Anyone have thoughts on that?   Good luck to anyone out there this weekend! Hopefully the fishing is back to normal after the weird start to the season.

      Heading up to crane Lake area. How are conditions and any tips / pointers?

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.
