Litter on Red Lake

Willy Walleye

Recommended Posts

I was driving my four wheeler along the shoreline on Upper Red Lake on saturday and was very dissappointed with how the fishermen are littering the lake. I had my son and daughter along and they couldn't believe how many of those small fat propane tanks there were laying on the shoreline, there must have been several hundred in the short distance that we drove...it makes you sick to see such waste and disregard for mother nature. I also couldn't believe how many of those yellow foam bobbers there were laying in the mess of stuff...why?? Don't people take them off and use them again??...I think they are expensive to just throw away. I just needed to vent and let out my feelings.

Litter is a shame, that's for sure!

I can shed some light on the Ice and Wave Buster Bobbers on the lake. (little yellow foam ones). In the Winter sometimes a pike will bite a person off under the ice, and the bobber is unretrievable. In the Summer, sometimes a bobber will come off when you break your line and if it's windy they disappear rather quickly, and by the time you pull up anchor and go to hunt it down it's a goner!

The 1 lb. propane cylinders are plain and simply wrong! I can't stand seeing them laying around in the Winter!

Did you pick up the bobbers? It's a great way to never have to buy any!

I agree. It makes me very mad when i see things like that. I dont know why people have to be so f***in lazy. They are giving themselves, and all other fisherman a bad reputation. For all you people who fish,PICK UP YOUR GARBAGE AND THROW IT IN A DUMPSTER OR GARBAGE. ITS NOT THAT TOUGH TO DO!! WE WOULD ALL LIKE TO FISH IN CLEAN WATERS.

Yeah it ticks you off to see it there on the beach, did it make you mad enough to pick a few of those things up??? I helped clean that same beach lasat year ONE of the times it was done, we took better than 8 larger trailers off that shoreline in not too long of a distance, that is just plain and simple BS!!!!!! mad.gif

We weren't prepared for what we saw, we didn't bring any garbage bags or anything else to put the stuff in. We thought we were going for a ride along the shore to enjoy mother nature and the large lake. Next time we go up there we are planning on bringing a tralier along with some large heavy duty bags. By the way, we picked up 19 bobbers without hardly looking, I don't think they were all from northerns biting off the line!!

      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.

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.
