Who cares leave your garbage on the lake!

Recommended Posts

kgpcr4

I am so sick of that attitude i could scream. Well i did one better over the weekend. We had some guys move in on us on Saturday night. On Sunday am they packed up and left about the time we were leaving. Well they left a pile on the lake 8 green gas cyliders, spit cups with spit, food wrapers and all kinds of junk. well i pikced it up and wouldnt you know it they were pulled up to one of our fine resorts. well it took the garbage bags and dumped the crap in the back of thier truck when i noticed the window open a bit well it was unlocked so i put the last one scattered throughtout the front of the truck. We then went in and grabbed a cup of coffee. I told the guy he forgot something on the lake and i put it in the front of his truck. he thanked me and i laughed. well he came out after us and blew a gasket. I am 6'4" and 325 pounds and spent 4yrs in the Marines so i just laughed. He sure was pissed. I made a mess of his truck but did no permanant damage. Guys lets Keep this and every lake clean. call people to task if you see them litter. We have a butiful state lets keep it that way.

I'm not nearly your ample size and have done the same to some slobs in the past. The looks on their face was priceless. No problems, they were speechless that somebody called them on their mess. I will continue to do it whenever the chance presents itself, f--- 'em if the cant take a joke. I have very little patience for this behavior all they need to know is I have their license # and that ends all complaints. Deal with me or the Conservation Officer. By the way, nice job now if we could get more people to think the same way

i like the idea but i would not advise anyone to do what you did. There are some loony people out there and you never know what they may do if you do that to the wrong person. There are things that your size cannot protect against. As I am sure you are well aware of.

Just curious, how old were these guys? I have a theory on litterbugs. I am 56 and when I was young and impressionable they had a great campaign in advertising and on TV. Most of you my age remember it. "Every litter bit hurts" and others. It helped and you saw a reduction in the amount of people tossing their stuff. Now when I see someone unwrap a candy bar and toss the wrapper in a crowd, or throw a big gulp drink cup out there car window I try to see how old they are. Most are young. If you tell them they shouldn't do that they look at you like your'e crazy. Parents have to school their kids in this and other bad habits. Maybe it's just because I am getting older but 3 things have really changed since I was young. Manners in general, cursing in public and littering.

Dont be too quick to blame young people. I am only 21 and respect the rules a lot more than my elder friends. I think everyone needs to clean up garbage even if its not your own. Its easy to blame but hard to help. right.

Being a slob is pretty much an upbringing thing(well most of the time).

I agree that "younger people" will show poor judgement time to time due to lack of experience, but it would be their mentors and parents responsibillity to help get them straight from the start. There were plenty of examples of "older people" demonstrating their poor judgement skills as well. I spent the entire weekend on the lake, along with both of my kids, and they had the opportunity to witness and cleanup some of the "poor judgement" but also were rewarded for their efforts to help keep it clean and prep the way for the next crop of fisherman. I say we all need to lead by example. It says more to stop and pickup that box, can bottle or whatever it is and dispose of it at the next earliest convience than to just blow on buy and (Contact Us Please) about it.

They were in thier 30's. I am mid 40's and i was not the least bit afraid. I knew that they were not the gang banger type with guns. I just did not care i was sooooo PEED OFF at them that i just thought it was time to teach them a lesson. They had left over a full garbage bag full of garbage on the lake. There is no excuse for that.

You are soooo right-glad to hear that you taught them a lesson!!! The same piggish things happen year round-deer hunting people dumping deer bones and hides on your property so that your dog gets into it and gets sick. People throwing their junk in the lake because "they don't live here" and throwing garbage out the window so it ends up in my yard!!! ARGH!!!!

Thank You!!!

Justin

it is an upbringing thing, if I did that as a kid I would have got it, and if mine do it they WILL get it.

Hey loupesi, I was not trying to say all young people are litterers, merely making the observation on how a generation was affected by an advertising campaign and the erosion of manners in general. Certainly there are exceptions. No intention to offend anyone.

Yup, I'm 43 and most people my age will remember these ad campaigns.

Woodsy the Owl's slogan was:

Give a Hoot, ---'- -------

Also burned into my memory is the image of a native american on horseback with a tear in his eye when he sees a littered area.

Mjen, I am not offended by your comment just simply stating that every "age group" litters, and that its easy to complain about it and blame other people, but harder to acctually help and lead by example. About the upbringing thing, I dont think that how you were raised has anything to do with littering. If your dad, or whoever, does not tell you not to litter when you are young, dont blame him. Its your fault that you are littering. Its simply education. If you know what littering does to the environment and the lakes you fish then lets hope you are smart enough not to do it. Its up to you to learn about this stuff and not for you daddy to teach you. If you dont know than i dont think you should be fishing or hunting.

Yes, it IS about personal responsibility.

However IT IS a Dad's job to teach his children personal responsibility. A lot of problems in today's society are due to dads neglecting that responsibility.

That being said, it's still a poor excuse for an adult who's littering. Yes, there are plenty of other places that he could have/ should have learned along the way that littering is unacceptable.

      Hi folks... I wanna specifically address fishermen and women, boaters, outdoorsmen and women, and their spouses and significant others. Also, anyone who believes that our right to access public waterways supported by our tax dollars, and managed for our benefit by the DNR, should not be infringed upon by special interests... listen up... You may or may not know about a new program in Wright County to limit access to three lakes in the Annandale area where wealthy lake-home associations have coerced the County Board into implementing a pre-launch "AIS Inspection Station" in the city of Annandale. Anyone wishing to launch a watercraft on Lakes Sylvia, Pleasant, and John, must first travel to the city of Annandale (miles away from any boat landing), go through an inspection process, and be given permission to launch their boat in the form of a zip-tie on the trailer. There are MANY problems with this inspection regime. One problem is its hours of operation. It is open from sunup to sundown. This means that if you wish to go fishing in the evening, or at night, or early in the morning, you must first travel to Annandale THE DAY BEFORE you wish to access the lake, and get your zip-tie. Needless to say, this will undoubtedly prove to be a big enough burden on boaters and anglers that many will simply choose to go elsewhere, which, we contend, is the unstated goal of the Lake Associations who have funded this effort to lobby the County Board. They want non-residents off "their" lake. Another problem is the fact that these lakes are already unfortunately infested with AIS, which means inspecting boats on the way IN to the lake makes no logical sense. Only inspecting boats in their way OUT of an infested lake will have any chance of slowing or halting the spread of AIS. Another problem is that local businesses in Annandale, Southhaven, and to a lesser extent Clearwater and Maple Lake, will be adversely affected by the reduction in commerce that WILL occur as people from outside these fine communities decide to take their watercraft elsewhere. Another problem is the scope of this program, and the stated goals of those who are promoting it. They have said point-blank that they hope to have every county in MN look to Wright County as an example of what can be pushed through, as Lake Associations state-wide are organizing their resources and their political clout in an effort to see similar County ordinances implemented throughout Minnesota. This could, in the future, lead to a scenario where every boater who does not own lake property will first be required to travel to a central County Inspection Station in whatever county they wish to launch their boat, before they will be given permission to launch at a lake that may be many miles away from the station. We believe this is an infringement on the rights of Minnesota boaters and sportsmen to freely and responsibly access our public waterways. Even the DNR is skeptical of this program, but since it is a county matter, they are accepting it for now. Sorry for the lengthy statement. Now I'd like to ask you to take action. We have organized a social media page, over 600-strong now.... Our goal is to gather as many concerned people as we can in this group - and then appeal to the Chambers of Commerce in these fine cities, to organize themselves and appeal to the County Board for a reversal of this misguided policy, on the grounds that it will harm them economically as people take their dollars elsewhere to avoid the infringement of the inspection regime. If you haven't already, and you are concerned about liberty to access public waterways without undue burdens placed upon your access, would you consider lending your voice to ours, and joining our group? Thank you! Join Us!

      My wife, son and I we're on Crystal Lake in Burnsville several years ago. My son was 14-1/2 yrs. old at the time, I use to let him drive the gravel roads up at deer camp all the time and let him back the trailer into the spot, he got pretty good at it. Anyway, back to the boat ramp at Crystal Lake. I dropped the wife and son off on the dock and waited my turn to load up...a local cop was at the ramp and my wife asked if it was ok if he backed in, he didn't mind.. vehicles were waiting and my son drops it in on the first try! Proud dad moment 👍👍

      That's how my dad taught me Tom! Got practice almost every night with the atv trailer when I turned 16 and could ice fish by myself. Once the summer rolled around a boat was a piece of cake!
