Shoreline Litter Post, Again...

2 posts in this topic

I apologize if there have been lots of posts similar to this one, but I see it getting worse instead of better. We've owned a little property on a lake in the Walker area for 4 full years now.

Every year I go around picking up a bunch of [PoorWordUsage] that apparently people can't seem to dispose of. I will hardly mention the beer bottles and cans that I find riddled on our property every spring (we have a Cty road that splits our property). This year alone I found one large styrofoam bait cooler, one five gallon bucket, and 4 worn out car/truck tires. This is only including 200 feet of shoreline! The tires makes me mad because they are unsightly. Now I get to pay to dispose of them because someone is too cheap to pony up themselves. The two bait buckets (150 feet apart) I'm assuming are ice fisherman because they weren't there late last fall.

I realize there is nothing really to be done, except to clean up after these slobs. What kind of fine can someone get if they get caught disposing of tires in a lake? Would fellow lakeshore owners confront someone if they saw someone dumping in their lake? We're on a beautiful lake with 14 foot clarity. Just had to get it off my chest, and hopefully others aren't experiencing the same thing I am.

Not to your extent, but we do pick up any trash we find in the lake, whether on ice or in boat. Teaching the grandkids that from the time they started going with. Hopefully it will rub off and they will always do it, and teach their frineds as well. Last year Bald Eagle was a mess during ice...

    • Sorry. I see this concept is completely over everyone's head here.    
    •   Just outlaw anything that might hurt someone.    If it saves just one life..... Do it for the children....   And they want us to believe these 2 political parties are different. 
    • Luckily for me my neighbor across the road bought a hive with 2500 or 25,000 bees, I forget, last summer. Have bees everywhere here in the summer and we plant a lot of flowers and will be increasing that this summer to help the little dudes. Even got a jar of honey from him last year!
    • I think just about anything can be smoked. would be easy to get the crappies over dry. they turned out great using the technique above. dang near as good as smoked eggs!  
    • Raised beds, you hear people talk about them but what are they? Depending on how much money you want to spend on material and dirt a raised bed can be just a couple 2x8’s nailed together to waist high beds that you don’t need to bend over to work. Now that waist high one will with dirt is going to cost you some compared to the shallow 2x8 bed. Either way a raised bed does some or all of the following things. It eliminates the need for tilling, as you never step into the bed thus compacting it. When you fill the bed it allows you too put clean dirt exactly where you want it, not on the paths between beds where you walk and never plant. Weed control is much easier. Containing the crop you are growing is much easier. Harvesting is much easier. You can add fertilizer taylor made for the crop you are growing not fertilizing the entire garden that maybe 30% of that you walk on and don’t grow in.   The last few years I have been switching to low raised beds and container growing. A typical 4x8 bed takes twenty bags of dirt to fill or about 500#’s the beds are so fluffy that I can turn them over with my hand or just a little rake. This season I am going to add three more beds which will give me total of 11 and over 50 five gallon containers. Of course if room is not a problem then traditional planting stills works just fine especially for spuds and melons and squash. Just offering other ideas.
    •   But yet Christians claim they do.....  
    •   The one I made called for cumin. I think next time I might do something in between my recipe and this one.
    • I always thought smoking was for more fattier fish such as lake trout, salmon, suckers, whitefish and the like?
    •     This sounds good. Gonna have to try it   Plus the emphasis on vegetables in most Chilis
